new used-books
this year’s leaves
begin to grow
on the birch tree

I Remember

I remember
when I was young

and first began
to watch plants
and flowers grow

and then placed
one rose from
a garden of our own

in a glass of water
on a table
by a comfortable chair

and sat there
most likely with
books and notebooks

a flower from the yard

a Psalm, a poem

a Psalm, a poem
books and journals

read and reread
a few decades ago

a new time to learn
and new life to grow

and lessons learned
and so much grew

so again another Spring
cool days and rain falls

and how the daylilies
and cotoneasters grow
