Endlessly Content To Be

Robert Francis (1901-1987), "Museum Vase," Collected Poems 1936-1976 (Amherst: University of Massachusetts Press, 1976), p. 221:
It contains nothing.
We ask it
To contain nothing.

Having transcended use
It is endlessly
Content to be.

Still it broods
On old burdens—
Wheat, oil, wine.
