Sunday in CinCity. The Spring Is in the Air Edition.

Contentment


by Michael Ryan



Fragile, provisional, it comes unbidden

as evening: the children on the block

called in to dinner that for tonight

is plentiful, as if it had cost nothing

either in money or worry about money.



Then evening deepens and the street

turns silent. There may be disasters

idling in driveways, and countless distresses

sharpening, but all that matters

most that must be done is done.
