Still Waters--Notes from a Virginia Shire
Offering a moment of tranquility

Before the Green
Each year in the interval between burnished autumn leaves
and the coming green of spring, earth lies in soft repose.
It clothes itself in quiet shades
as the blue hydrangea fades to pale.
Marsh grasses turn flaxen
or hold mists of linen and gray.
And tiny berries appear like bubbles in champagne
Whether early winter or early March,
is our last moment of sleep before the bell chime of spring.
