Where the backyard slopes

gently toward itself,

About these ads

the ''V'' in the lawn of snow

widens with each temperate day.

In bare branches, starlings

wait, rise,

settle again.

We will not weep

to see the first crocus,

About these ads

pale as the grass

that has no hands

to roll away the stone.
