Beggar's Dream

Beggar’s Dream

Disc so pale and flat in gray winter          
sky—sun gone moon

in peaceful haze
of day-night-day, floating

shyly to view receding
behind drifting flakes—

a beggar’s dream
in wan tumbling light,

scuffed dime now glimpsed
now gone—glad

fleeting ghost 
of unearned, unhoped-for keeping.
