A Song on Every Lawn
alpacas1

i. Genesis
 1
The blue grass sings
 2
Spring springs early
 3
Buds burst and bloom
 4
A bird on every bough
 5
 
 
II. The Gods of Summer
 6
The July days blaze
 7
Summer trumpets on
 8
With its gladiator sun
 9
And a suit of green and gold
 10
 
 
III. Autumn's Anthem
 11
Fall falls soon
 12
Trees shiver and deliver
 13
Showers of leaves
 14
Bleed red and bronze.
 15
 
 
IV. Winter's Bone
 16
And now a formal solstice
 17
Tree limbs etched black
 18
Against the pallid sky
 19
Full circle to chilly December
 20
 
 
V. Birds
 21
The screech of the crow
 22
and the trill of the lark
 23
Chirp exaltation
 24
A song on every lawn
 25
