In Season - Poem by barbara foster schutz

Putting
on youth so timidly,
the awkward hickory limbs bud and burst,
tremble to an uncertain green;
eclipsed by brazen daffodils, the tender leaves
take heart from dogwood branches filled with stars,
-sure of their place on the bough-
-and shyly wait for sun and moon-
to shape new truths
from
old
and
tangled roots.
