THE MARRYING KIND

The trees are engaged this year,
fig to myrtle, myrtle to pine, pine
to palm, feeling each other up
in seasonal delirium.  Each speaks
a different dialect, yet borders
are open, no passport is needed. Wind, 
their license for intercourse, speeds
up the vows--Yes Dear, I Do,
I do, and anyhow we're rooted here
among hibiscus flower girls and
azalea groomsmen before April dazzle
gives way to spurious summer.
Cling, Cling, sing the wind chimes.
Mendelssohn it's not, but there's pep
enough to put spring in your step
