For the Tree Buds
The baby tree buds pushing leaf Like something almost being said It's time, my friend, to take the hint, to look ahead But greenness brings a kind of grief And so to that end a reverie For what's soon to be Put to bed And is it that they're born again No, friend, April's blossoms they die too Oh, and just like you, their yearly trick of looking new Will someday be, by nature's pen Written deep in rings of grain That tell what came And what's through But just to watch these castles thresh Their thickness growing day by day It's as if they say last year is dead, but come what may The season's ripe to start afresh So close your eyes and make a wish Then let the rest Have its way
