Lyrical Somerville – April 5

On April 5, 2017, in Latest News, by The Somerville Times

The perfect poem for spring from long-time contributor Robert K. Johnson.

HIGH

 

on the greening lawn

of their hilltop house,

a young husband

 

bends over

in order to barrel

the pile of dead leaves

 

their work compiled

while his young wife

leans on her rake

 

just as a breeze

plays with her hair.

 

So spring begins.

 

— Robert K. Johnson
