party time

Last week debutante trees shimmered
in gowns of pink and white
Today all soiled and green-mottled

Last week a crowd of daffodils
nodded sunny time to wind-rhythms
Today heads downcast, stiff, shrunken

But today mahonia's blossoms buzz with bee-banter
purple pansies curtsey in the breeze
and every garden offers
tulip goblets of red, yellow
white, blush, wine

Slow down, I beg from speeding car
Wait, I plead from office window
or Spring's party will be over
before I find time to come
