Chairman

5

After a day like this one
and the wind has swept through
all day long, bringing rain,
the sky breaking in the West
at last; late evening, one bright
star coming through the turmoil
of clouds, grey and blue;
with the late rain on the steps,
near his lantern stands
the Chairman; quite young
still, surveying great beauty.
