spring pond

march

the ground mud-soft, so
over there a fence goes up
around the playground
(out with the old and in
with the new); the sidewalk trees
have fresh-cut eyes; smoke
of the prairie-burn drifts north
with this craze for nesting
these fussy pairs of geese

april

you follow the beacons
of bud-blaze, red

find, mud-still (mud,
still—) a man is fishing
