Subject(s): April; Togetherness

I walked against a sudden blue of sky,
Discovering the first anemones,
And sharp and wild I heard your petaled cry
Like golden rain among the listening trees.
I climbed the valley and I found you there,
As lithe and slim as any birch that stands
At dawn, with luna moths upon your hair
And redbud clusters trembling in your hands.

O what will happen when the lunas fly
And those bright blossoms wither in the sun?
O surely something fair and young will die
And something finish that is just begun.
Your April soul and mine will weep together
For something passing in the April weather.
