Thursday Verse: "Question" - May Swenson

QUESTION

Body my house
my horse my hound
what will I do
when you are fallen 
Where will I sleep
How will I ride
What will I hunt 
Where can I go
without my mount
all eager and quick
How will I know
in thicket ahead
is danger or treasure
when my Body my good
bright dog is dead 
How will it be to lie in the sky
without roof or door
and wind for an eye 
With cloud for shift
how will I hide?
