~ (~) Papa What is it About Spring (VIDEO FOR THIS ONE) (~) ~
I don't know Son, Killdeer's draw-
you away-from their-nest, bluejays-
holler to all-about it, hungry-father
fox he knows about-it... .
Kinder-yes I think-much gentler-Spring,
when the-rejuvenation is just first-arriving-
reminds-me of the-back-and-breaststrokes-
holding your breath while-doing-a-crazy-twirl,
Saw three of them Kamikaze my humble dog-one
day. Samba just hit the grass rolled over boxed away-
at-them old blue-jays on his back-yelping; I laugh, he
was-just a pup-then.
Best way to compare it... I would think Spring;
"The-hands of-time are-alliterate-Spring-is-but-the-brunt of this-
each Season-carry's snow-caped mountains-berries in-the-valleys-
lilies-in the-meadow-pine in the woods squirrels-rummaging-in-the-
Birddogs are quite capable of pointing this out... as still-this-hope,
Spring-it-is I believe its-rejoinder-to-us for our-Winter's-supplications,
the-harvest of-the-wheat-in the-fall Spring-rains I feel-remind-us... .
The Summer-Sun-always toasting-the memory's golden-brown... ."
