Alaska Spring!

by Carol Ford

Sure and sudden

Like an old friend

Turned lover,

Tender and fresh,

Sweet and strong,

The Earth,

Long dead and silent,

Bursts its icy bonds

And ? overnight ?

Brews its rich, loamy,

Seductive potion

Mosses green and bask,

Fern tongues

Yawn and stretch

And settle into lacy coverlets

Sap surges.

Leaves unfurl

In a wild cacophony

Of passerine passion

That shouts its busy, joyful symphonyv

All night.

Rainbow smacks the surface of glass

And flies clear out,

Then dives deep down.

Loon shatters the twilight silence

With her wild yodel,

And with her haunting, primordial tremolo,

Shakes the very foundations on time.

Alaska Spring!
