Barbara Spring Red and Gold Sassafras Poem

red and gold sassafras poem

Red and gold sassafras

……… Barbara Spring

Red and gold sassafras

Slender green tasseled grass

And the lake waves say

“too soon, too soon.”

White mares’ tails streak blue skies

sea gulls slide and slip in air

trembling shadows on the sand

                 whisper  but I can hear

 “too soon, too soon”.
