April Burns

April burns in cruel temptation

Like fires of so long ago

The tinder of the middle ages

A renaissance over the snow


Mild to summer’s wild abandon

Hell to winter’s icy grip

Misty rain in sheets of burden

And off the open’d petals drip


Acres wide the grass is greening

The sun climbs higher in the sky

In heaven, winter stars are reeling

Sliding down where they must die


Springtime blooms a billion colors

Blue-green, orange, violet, red

So much it seems like April’s burning

So much life, yet so much dead
