Stirring : A Literary Collection

Marie Kane


The day passed not as light

but as green gold on burnished earth with
trails of shout-yellow tulips and royal lilacs
brandishing their froth.  All is sharpened
by the rain, and the spiked air,
and the coming summer.

To love you is to see these things

just as the sundial sees the angle
of time, notes color change from
midnight to pink, and marks the sky
in minutes.
