Green Dress With A Sprinkling Of Roses, Hydrangeas

in Spring or just before she sighed
the soul longs for a floral dress
one of polished cotton with

a generous skirt tnat swirls
and you want to whirl
without dizziness as if

you were a child when the
green grass seemed everything
to you then the green grass

seemed like Heaven could be
and the Soul with its foreground
of polished green, its generous

sprinkling of roses, spiced 
carnations, blue
hydrangeas of pale lilies, intensified moonlight
is dancing even without the tune
