The first notes of Spring
Hum up in green blades
Garlic, tulip, daffodil
Soon even peony and lily
Join the warming choir

So soon I will lie
In the welcoming mud
Paint my hair green
Encourage the bulbs
Add to the purple

We want to be compost
When we go together on
Into the larger song
Until then, my hair imitates
Our best becoming.
