Treasure Island

Brian Kilpatrick

The Petal Falls

The petal falls
The colors 
Of the apple blossom 
Rain on the eyes
Hungering for spring
Drinking in the color
Savoring them like 
They had to last forever
The children play
Adding to the  choir
That is already spring

I remember the apple blossoms
From my 5th grade class room
It was the most beautiful spring

Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
