Ask the spring,
in its beauty
no stranger 
to this land.

Who is the man
pale and bloody
his wounds from
miles of walking?

The Hummingbird

The sunlight speaks.  And its voice is a bird:

It glitters half-guessed half seen half-heard

Above the flower bed. Over the lawn …

A flashing dip and it is gone.

And all it lends to the eye is this —

A sunbeam giving the air a kiss.

Is not determined by us
