Poetry: Morning Glory Vine

Morn­ing Glo­ry Vine
–Ann Iverson

      One year
      as late as October
      it crawled its tangled
      journey
      up the cyclone fence
      the trel­lis archway
          the apple tree
     
    was eye
    to eye
      with us
          in our
sec­ond-sto­ry bedroom.
We talked about it often,
    our own flag of red apple and blue glory.
      For how could we have
     
      ignored the beauty
      which fol­lowed us
     
          that year
            we
      mar­ried in July?
