“Oh, Green, Green, Green, Green, Green!”
Since April does expect to have her fling;
an idiot’s delight, her trees will crest.
As yellow-noise among her branches sing,
she lifts my spirit with her colors blessed.
April’s here again; seductive creeper.
Among the dandelions nods her song.
Her splendid call delights us with her blinders
of lush and leafy circles; vining throngs.
But, oh, defies allegiance from my heart
since you are gone with winter’s morning chill.
No matter, I will trust her insane start;
my mind befuddled neath her greener will.
Oh, lunatic! enchanter of the Spring.
I must become a partner to your green.
