The Elizabeth Trinities

Robert Billings

BILLINGS' LANDSCAPE IS UNIVERSALLY NORTH; it provides for the perpetual life and death struggle, for the instinct of animals in their natural wildness, for the tricked gods and their resultant anger.


... The land lay like a dream
of land; the orange glare
spread between the islands' gap
like unbearable faith;
grass was gold, rock
glinted, and even
the green-black of the pine forest
seemed to glisten—as badgers' eyes
do for the night and a new prowl....


from A Lake in Northern Ontario, August
