'Burke uses all the poetic tools at his disposal to create poems that rejoice in being poems & rejoice in the world about the poem.'

extract:

 

The responsive modulations of the heart

 

Yes, this is the world as it is

 

Is and will be in all its many selves

 

Self of water, self of air – self in its singing song

 

Song of tower, song of water, song of three swans

upon the lake and the song of three children calling

 

The water flowing, flowing, flowing

 

All things flowing into verse

 

Word and world and the responsive heart

 

Three towers - three swans – the heart responding –

the mouth replying with a lyric

 

Lyric of delight, of Brugge in its beauty, of the

fashioning word upon the waters of the world

 

Spoken, written, sung, and loved by

the one who is your lover
