After the Rains, a Day in May on Mayfair


Of Fathering and Mothering and Gardening


























Once upon a time

in spring,












a little cottage-dwelling in



















a valley,

(where the mountains bring






















and bring and bring


and bring

and bring),






















many a thing
























set out to pluck a wintering;



























the little boy

and little girl

stood up and left their footprints in



















the gatherings

of singing things

and greening things




















and other things



born to leave










































































once upon a time,


in spring.
