The artist Wyeth

Said all of life was displayed

About these ads

in a square-inch of grass.

He must have seen the diamond drop

Wedged on the arch of a blade,

The curved wands of grass bending

in the wind,

The wormhole mounds breaking through

the soil,

About these ads

The mossy mat beneath the fresh new stalks,

The glistening edges, the darkness beneath.

A communion of renewal,

A symphony in green.
