I Forgot the Poems, So Here They Are:

Another Spring: A Pantoume

 

If I never see another spring–

the green thrusts of daffodils,

the violin curl of ferns–

I will still remember them.

 

The green thrusts of daffodils,

the scatter of crocuses.

I will still remember them

when I am under earth.

 

The scatter of crocuses,

like children in a playground,

when I am under earth

will still look the same:

 

like children in a playground.

The violin curl of ferns

will still look the same

(even if I never see another spring).

Intimations of Spring

 

Yes, snow blankets meadows.

Yes, the wind is chill.

Yes, branches are all bare of buds.

And still. . .and still. . .

 

Color tinges twigs,

birds chorus at the dawn,

the sun is rising early,

my heart goes on.

The Coral Lesson

The coral does

its sexy dance

when moonbeams lead it

to romance.

 

In this short poem

there is a moral:

be as receptive

as the coral.
