But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

I love you, I love you, I love you,
with the armchair and the book of death,
down the melancholy highway
in the iris’s darkened garret,
in our bed that was once the moon’s bed,
and in that dance, the turtle dreamed of.

— Federico García Lorca

TURKEYS

The turkeys wade the close to catch the bees
In the old border full of maple trees
And often lay away and breed and come
And bring a brood of chelping chickens home.
The turkey gobbles loud and drops his rag
And struts and sprunts his tail and then lets drag
His wing on ground and makes a huzzing noise,
Nauntles at passer-bye and drives the boys
And bounces up and flies at passer-bye.
The old dog snaps and grins nor ventures nigh.
He gobbles loud and drives the boys from play;
They throw their sticks and kick and run away.
—John Clare (1793-1864)

It rained overnight
The mountains are turning green
Love the monsoon rains.

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
You belong with your love in your arm
You belong somewhere you feel free.

Digging for nature’s juices
Growing and changing.
