As if to say a bud is spring


As if to say
a bud is spring

in haste to speak
of everything

the tongue
admires

the heart
desires

what is
but isn’t seen

Now this was truly lilting, William...like a song~

Thank you, Jan. I’m not quite sure, but this might be one of those instances when the song sounds more than it means; or when the sound is the meaning, and the words are obliged to sing along....

Nice, very
nice and always timely when
the song sings exactly
what it means.

As if to say
a word has springs

the tongue will leap
at anything

(and here is where
he gets off the bus)
