Who Will? – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“What is more generous than a window?” Pat Schneider

Who Will?

Who cares for the sill,
that faithful ledge of old
who holds the pane in high 
esteem and kindly thwarts
the elements of nature's unruly
love for us, now the blistering,
powdered paint exposing deep,
ancient cracks and shrinking,
the frame so loose, a sliver 
missing from the edge, no 
longer crisp and plumbly square,
wearing as the days inexorably 
roll along, and nature still calls by,
wondering, who will care for the sill?
