flowering           -foliage of a young maple
a thin rachis-                    alarmed in mars

makes promise-                   -over its eaves
to leave the light on                -red handed

in the casement-         -still warm to touch
hard for the sugar house -in a bed of bees

its boreal music                 -thin and hoary
tonic-                           -in eloquent silence
