                                        ODE TO SUMMER

                                        There is a green
                                        Beyond all green
                                        That peeks around the wintry white.

                                        a green so sweet
                                        that tears slip from the eyes
                                        and turn to dew upon the ground.

                                        the green so sweet
                                        that from the grave
                                        beloved dead burst into flowers
                                        before the snowmelt sings in high summer.

                                        Bird song
                                        with warbling sweetness of the green---
                                       'Til green tumble-slides down mountains
                                               with a slam into the frigid sea---                          
                                        Iceberg Blue to sing reply.
