The Vernal Gallery

Poem By Richard George

Tangles of verdure
under Scandinavian
teal-blue chill of sky:
virginal, viridian,
nourished by February rain

Essences of spring
budding into blossom white
on a cold north wind:
this is the tenderest time,
on the cusp of hope and fear

By the end of March
coumarins waft new-mown hay's
unreasoning joy:
Eros electric is shi-
mmering through lovers' auras

according to her moods:
and when they sensed a coming storm
they crept into corners.

Now I may never see you again
I can think of no one else:
I wait on platforms, hair in the wind
But trains all leave the past

The dark young man
with the curls of the Maghreb
is in an altercation
