Spring song source: tritina


These first pale golden days announce the spring,

the swelling of the buds and then the song

of birds and water running from the source.


A sunrise crisp brings deer up to the source

to drink, where clustered violets frame the spring

that courses through the grass with silver song


down to the willow-shaded stream. The song

That stirs the shoots and roots lies at the source

Of all this golden frothing that is spring.


All this golden spring, song is the source.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
