TIME AND PLACE

TIME   AND   PLACE


Spring is found in the Lowland valleys with gowan-filled braes of Scotland
When the early-reaching flowers bloom in cool freshness,  and
The air is bracing and always new-washed-glass clean  -
With the Ochils in  the background green,
Willing us, begging us  --  Come to the heather hills, please  !
Around Ben Lomond, they perfume the breeze
With memories of Bruce and Wallace 
And feel young in our face.


Summer is a thousand-mile southbound road-trip heading
To Yellowstone through Montana and Wyoming,
With 104F degree air gushing in the vent,
And dinner in the Angel Inn, where we went
For a chicken smorgasbord snack
And a cool six pack.


Autumn is a Saskatchewan garden with leaves singing,
Tenacious against a hissing wind; and  clinging
Above the grass, feeling the ice-chilled bite,
Anticipating a coming  gown of white.


Winter is cold with lots of snow:
Moscow.
