Altitude -

I first read the title of this poem as Attitude, and then, wondered if, in this case, attitude and altitude are the same.


Altitude by Lola Ridge

I wonder
how it would be here with you,
where the wind
that has shaken off its dust in low valleys
touches one cleanly,
as with a new-washed hand
and pain
is as the remote hunger of droning things,
and anger
but a little silence
sinking into the great silence.
