(May 10, 1995)
of many flowers.
Tulips are near gone,
dogwoods fadingbut azaleas brilliant.
Giant rhododendrons now prime their time
while full-flowered lilacs cast free their fragrance.
Each sweet day has its own unique adornment,
of color or shape or scent: Spring's myriad beauties.
When May Day comes, dark skies bequeath all their showers.
Inside, lights dim and music swells: the pageant begins.
Turning, expecting a familiar sight, I see her
glittering vision! She takes my breath away.
(Gone the little girl I knew.)
And all the hours there
her smile illumines night
in the place
