Two 9 July poems from '1001 POEMS' by the Danish writer Klaus Høeck

  perhaps the every
  day consisted of
this clarification of
  details this vigi
  lance and solici
tude concerning events that
normally played no part what
  soever the sound
  of raindrops against
the shed roof or july’s pur
  gatory of light
  ning over the corn

  because it was these
  small events which tongued
and grooved the day together
  to form the wholeness
  i would prefer to
call the ‘allday’ rather than
the ‘everyday’ because it
  was these small grains of
  sand around which the
spirit concentrated it
  self and was spread like
  rings across the day
