its many strands

why is this jostling procession of waters,
its many strands overclambering one another,
so many word-marks, momentary traces
in wind-script of the world's voice,
why is it so bragging and surrendering,
love-making, spending, working and wandering.

-- Alice Oswald, lines from Dart
