City Springtide

Earth’s an asphalt Eden—
new life in every leaf!
Awakening’s burst democratically
’round cracked red tenements
and stylish porticoes.

Meditate under this amphitheater’s
vast blue white-flecked dome.
The air’s conditioned
perfectly this month.

Delight with no distraction
in the wonders that come forth,
green life from nothingness!

This lavish garland,
Creation, cavorts,
blossoming colors’
endless profusion,

while magnolia virgins
in white gowns
line the streets
hands clasped
in prayer.

Behold the miracle:
all things made new!
