entirely upon the breeze

there is a certain fragrant ease

a vernal arrogance, a tease


each shell

each nest

each hole unfurled

each bud

each blossom:

sovereign worlds


and when, at last, the thaw seeps in

unleashed, a thousand thoughts that sing

of spring and wings and newborn things


emerges fierce from dreams of frost

the victor clings and counts no cost


Nickels and Diamonds

Everything interesting, everything new

You find what glitters when I walk with you

Things that were lost are outgrown like your shoes

All that I passed by was worth it with you


Puddles and rainbows, acorns and shells

Frost on the windows, tinkling bells

With you, life is magic with treasures to find

And out of your pockets come nickels and diamonds


Sunrises, seasons, and waves on the sand

Too few are the days that I’ll hold your hand

So I’ll rock you and read you and sing you to sleep

And I won’t let that cradle fall out of the tree


Pinecones and butterflies, feathers and swings

Pebbles and ribbons and green growing things

With you, there are stories and pleasures to find

For out of your pockets come nickels and diamonds
