Spring, 2020 - Poem by Janet Ruth Heller on The Table Read

April and May frosts

shrivel fruits and flowers

on lilacs, apple trees,

plums, cherries,

peaches, and magnolias.

But trillium, dame’s rocket,

dandelions, redbuds,

violets, honeysuckle,

dogwood, and azalea

proliferate.

An uneasy spirit

disrupts and pervades

towns, woods, and prairies.

People groan, crowds wail,

wrens shriek,

and coyotes howl.
