Rain — exactly the weight a young flower
can bear — forehead to ground,
the first morning prayer

(and up on the road a kingdom is there)

I may be wrong, William, I often am...but this was my thought after reading your wonderful poem~

Whatever springs naturally, Jan, is my good fortune to hear.

Thank you, as always....
