Down South
The wind croons low
To the sleeping earth,
Prickling with lust of birth;
In leafy bower
Sacred to the hour
Fragrant trees
Scatter incense on the earth.

Down South
I heard the dark
Find voice in song of bird;
Light touched its wing
But not its sight
Between the rise and rest
Of large-eyed night.

Down South
As here I lie
In ecstasy expectant,
My pulse is stilled;
Petals luminous
Drift subtle, sure
From a Dryadic living thing --
Magnolia Grandiflora.
