I wish

I wish,
oh, I wish
that as a high school student—
especially as a high school student taking photography,
living where I lived
(on the grounds of the seminary in Rüschlikon
overlooking the village and the east end of the lake and the Alps),
I wish I had taken pictures,
every day,
of the view—
and captured all the different cloud configurations
and the storms,
and the sun rising
and the moon—
hazy days
and the crystal clear ones when the Föhn blows,
the snow, the light and all the particular moods
that go into knowledge of a place.
