Chicagoetry: Spring Song

After Jai Raj Harrisong

Little Darling:

Bang a gong
Of Siddhartha
At the coming
Of spring!

Set the blue birds,
Cardinals and robins
To singing,
Light a scented votive

In the warming breeze.
Desire is resurrected
In the bloom
Of every tulip,

Rose of Sharon
And cherry-blossom.
Snuggle the bosom
Of Mother Earth,

Banish the dearth
Of winter's malice.
Little Darling:
Smiles return,

Barbecues burn.
Seems like years
Since it's been here.
Sip a chalice

Of warm wine,
Let the clover shine:
Dew glazes
The leaves

With song

Like gloss
On a gong.
