Spring Follows Winter Once More, by Tom Hennen

It’s currently snowing here (nature is all like April Fools humans!), and we certainly don’t have any tall grass yet, but theoretically spring is following the winter…soon.

Spring Follows Winter Once More

Lying here in the tall grass

Where it’s so soft

Is this what it is to go home?

Into the earth

Of worms and black smells

With a larch tree gathering sunlight

In the spring afternoon

And the gates of Paradise open just enough

To let out

A flock of geese.

– Tom Hennen

It’s relevant because of the geese.
