Two Poems Alan Stephens

The Morning of Glenn Gould's Funeral in Canada
Hearing him now on the car stereo -
  That's as he wished it when alive -
  I watch for crossing deer, and slow
  For the tight down-curves as I drive
         Through deep oak-shadows
  Over the back way to Ojai.
The October day burns quiet bright and dry
         In the brown meadows.
