A SPRING POEM


SWEET SIGN OF SPRING -
GOLDEN,
SHIMMERING,
SUN-WELCOMING BEAUTY.

SWEET SIGN OF SPRING -
SO EARLY,
SO PROLIFIC,
PROVIDING FOOD FROM EVERY PART.

YET, MARGINALIZED
AND SHUNNED
BY HUMAN IGNORANCE,
POMPOUS ARROGANCE AND GREED.

SWEET SIGN OF SPRING,
YOUR BEAUTY
TOUCHES ME
WITH CHILD-LIKE WONDER -
SWEET DANDELION.
