Some random bud will meet;
Thou canst not tread, but thou wilt find
The daisy at thy feet...."

Memorable Blossoming - Missoula,Montana

"...And there are other places which,
although we did not stay for long,
stick in the mind and call us back—
a valley visited one spring
where walking through an apple orchard
we breathed its blossom with the air.
Return seems like a sacrament...."

"...When the calves come, along with the laughing,
Spanking new, beckoning, Spring, green grass
yearning softly sighs like earth's breath,
pleading with wisps of wind..."

Hung in rich profusion o’er them."
