      Make much of something small.
      The pouring-out of tea,
      a drying flower's shadow on the wall
      from last week's sad bouquet.
      A fact: it isn't summer any more.

      Say that December sun
      is pitiless, but crystalline
      and strikes like a bell.
      Say it plays colours like a glockenspiel.
      It shows the dust as well,

      the elemental sediment
      your broom has missed,
      and lights each grain of sugar spilled
      upon the tabletop, beside
      pistachio shells, peel of a clementine.

      Slippers and morning papers on the floor,
      and wafts of iron heat from rumbling radiators,
      can this be all? No, look — here comes the cat,
      with one ear inside out.
      Make much of something small.
