Al Que Quiere!/Love Song (1st)

Daisies are broken
petals are news of the day
stems lift to the grass tops
they catch on shoes
part in the middle
leave root and leaves secure.

Black branches
carry square leaves
to the wood's top.
They hold firm
break with a roar
show the white!

Your moods are slow
the shedding of leaves

and sure
the return in May!

We walked
in your father's grove
and saw the great oaks
lying with roots
ripped from the ground.
