“Road” by Leo Greenfield


by Leo Greenfield

The new road
cuts straight through the hill.
The bare sides of the cut
are ugly scars that mar
the green surface of the land.
But they are beautiful, too,
witness, undeniably, of man’s mastery over dirt.

“Road,” by Leon Greenfield originally published in Forum (1947, City College of San Francisco).
