EQUINOX

In their proper season all things burn,

As the frozen streets of winter yearn

 

For summer shores, as the star that clarifies

The bracing lawns of fall eventually dies

 

So that shoots can rise again in springs,

Lost skies pounding from the wings

 

That in their shimmer bare

The skeletons of planets in the air,

 

As now we focus on their crown but wish,

All things this evening being evenish,

 

For the heat to change, the sun to drown,

For leave to rain, and cloud come down.
