For Earth Day: “Beauty and Truth”

Beauty and Truth

 

Windows let in spring's 
bare light, the early drab

before leaf and petal
glamorize the season.

I must refrain from reason
now-- this art a beautiful 

indirection that gets
somewhere somehow, that lets

virtue bloom, crocuses
gaudily there. To be moved

by presence made excessive,
a thing come true.
