Ellen Steinbaum is a poet and author of several books, including her newest book, This Next Tenderness. She has a blog called “Reading and Writing and the Occasional Recipe,” which she has been writing since 2009. She also wrote City Type for the Boston Globe from 2002 to 2009.
Here, we share her poem of the moment:
Brightness Falls
When the Red Line train
rises out of the tunnel just past
Kendall Square station,
crosses the Longfellow Bridge,
sunlight glinting off the
Charles and the hammered gold
State House dome, a few riders
look up, notice, the way
in “The Hour
of Cowdust,” the painting, small, un-
finished, easy to miss along the Museum
of Fine Arts corridor on the way to
Special Exhibitions in Islamic Arts,
the procession down from the Punjab Hills
brings blue-washed cows back
to their calves and tired herders
to their wives in peaceful winding-down,
late sun catching each mote to fill the air
with languid radiance in what is
sometimes called grace.
