A Morning in Spring

The apple trees and tulips have finished their display, but the bridal wreath is in full bloom.  The sky promises a welcome soaking around noon today.

The year's at the spring
the day's at the morn
morning's at seven
the hillside's dew-pearled
the lark's on the wing
the snail's on the thorn
God's in His heaven
All's right with the world

Peaceful Morning

Another peaceful morning at Lake Harriet with goslings and herons happily hugging the shore.

An opera-tinted gown with a cemetery song

I dream
to don
the dress
of the 
apple trees
and dance
upon the lake
as a dragonfly
then twirl
up a trail
so I can
touch the sky
and feel
what I am told
that I
will never die
