Spring Song II
By Jean Garrigue
And now my spring beauties, Things of the earth, Beetles, shards and wings of moth And snail houses left From last summer's wreck, Now spring smoke Of the burned dead leaves And veils of the scent Of some secret plant,
Come, my beauties, teach me, Let me have your wild surprise, Yes, and tell me on my knees Of your new life.
