Start-1

There is brown on the lilac
its promise is spent
the sweet dreams of springtime
with summer relent
now all the young startlings are leaving their home
and late-nesting goldfinches


Since first you fired
the arrows of your glance
even in fields and woods blue-hazed
in chill of early morning

the fondest memories are of times
we did not dare to chance
