April

by Linda Pastan


A whole new freshman class

of leaves has arrived


on the dark twisted branches

we call our woods, turning


green now--color of

anticipation. In my 76th year,


I know what time and weather

will do to every leaf.


But the camellia swells

to ivory at the window,


and the bleeding heart bleeds

only beauty.
