Folk Dance

Folk Dance

morning is accompanied by pipe and drum
sounding the sun
rattle of leaves unfurling
sharp notes of rose and gold
pierce the blue sky
filling in the quarter notes of frogsong
disharmony of dove and robin
south wind scatters
beats of tree and blossom
fresh dancers appear
in fields of henbit and sweetgrass
wreathed in lilac and rose
twined grapevines in their hair
brown rabbits leap in time
traipsing into the contradance
circling round and round and round
dancing into spring
