The Watery Approaches to Sydney

5 am. There first lights come on
in and out of the train.
The watery approaches to Sydney
fill our moving windows —
the bends of the huge river 
spreading grey and glassy,
rows of spindly posts
marking the oyster leases —
as I cross again 
these old, familiar bridges,
waking up this morning.
