Spring snow

Yesterday this tulip had her petals wide open to receive the Spring sun, and this morning she thought better of it.

APRIL is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering     
Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
A little life with dried tubers.
