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.



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
