Spring Garden Song

the persistence of Life

Chervil fill the garden in March.

Garlic humming underground
Sends up now a different sound:
Tallish, reedy, like a flute
Sends up green and branchy shoot.

Potted bay sings other songs
To the sky for which it longs
Sees it for now behind glass
Waiting for the cold to pass.
