Subject(s): Dogwood; Spring


Dogwood blossoms fleck the brook
Where the branches lean to look
At the golden ripples weaving
Shimmering tapestry on stones.
Then, with soft, ecstatic moans,
The brook leaps down a mossy ledge;
Forget-me-nots grow at its edge;
Water-cresses crowd in, leaving
No open water for a space;
Trout dart out and swiftly race
To hide among the roots that lace
The hidden current. Then again
The stream descends a tiny glen
Into a pool, once bridged by men.
