A Lightness of Being

For the dog and the child
spring splashes with puddles.

For the red rod of peony
spring splits the garden floor.

For the faint of vision
spring sculpts sensuous light.

For the willow that weeps
spring drapes amber lace.

For the weary winter soul
spring sits atop the blue spruce

and sings.
