Delicate, uncertain spring is past
Hot, lush grass bursts forth
Heat presses cheeks
Licking humid limbs
Fern uncurls
Slow opening up
Reach to touch
Rush of sap...
Opening lily bud
Pistils dangle, quaking
Pollen dusting, sticking, smearing
Drowsy bees
Sup nectar drops
Fat, guiltless summer
Spills abundant seeds
And sated, sleeps
Beneath the leafy trees.
