(23 09 1960 / Ireland)

An Ukrainian Spring

Babushkas gather fallen branches
Broken by winter's freeze
Whitewash is painted on the base
Of a row of chestnut trees
Apartment residents dust rugs
On roller racks in the green
All around the block
Is weeded and swept clean
Almond blossom scents the air
Petals fall on concrete
Army recruitment posters pasted
On billboards in the street
It's Easter time
I hear the Cathedral bell ring
2014 A resurrection
An Ukrainian spring
