"Vincent at Saint-Remy"

by Marc MacNair


X.    The Road, pt. 2 (Village Street and Steps in Auvers with Figures)

You were Jacob,

Vincent, moving into new

Surroundings, laying your head

On the rocky bed

Of an uncertain past,

A future known to you,

You saw the angels at Auvers,

Rising and descending

In their ordinary way

Milling about their lives,

Taking from God,

Giving back to you
