Collect the Day: April Morning

National Poetry Month, Day 15

Halfway through!

Collect the Day: April Morning




plangent thrumming,

thrilling, sonorous,

it starts before dawn, before sunrise,

the languid echoing calls of a thousand robins

into the green grove.

As light arrives,

 maple tree outside my window shows

neon green embryos of leaves.


I want to stand

Silent as the Hosta

growing in my garden


but larger

every day.
