I Have Memorized Sping - Poem by Sheena Blackhall

I have memorized spring
My inner sight sees perilous snowdrops
Stretch through mottled leaves

I have memorized spring
That memory soothes
The tenacious aches of age
It feeds the dying days

I have memorized spring
Its avalanche of blossoms
Its pompom catkins, bobbing
Like shadow boxers

I have memorized spring
As part of the pilgrimage of time

A spider spins my shroud
Though all the world
Is bee and swallow loud
