On Receiving a 50 Lb. Carton Of The Great Books

my categories are never in the great books
she laughed what to wear when larkspur blooms
the color of the moon at Christmas

are there enough rosebuds in the small bouquet
and when the trees sway, what do they mean
and how many shades of green are possible

and what should we sing in the moment it turns to Spring
and are all wings iridescent or only a few
and will I know you in the next life

will we all be together under the sun that never blinks
and will we still dream wide awake.
do you think so?

when the Lord takes all our souls
back home
