Love Poem, by Paul Zimmer

Love Poem

1

Last days before first frost

we stroll out hand in hand

to see yellow sulfurs lift

in multitudes

over the fields

flittering in ecstatic pairs

to descend

and spangle the hay

2

Months later

trudging winter fields

in the morning sun

we see their million

rapturous spirits have risen

through layers of drift

to glitter

on the snow crust

– Paul Zimmer
