Summer does not come…

Sun in Gemini

Summer does not come at once

Its grip on that which gives it birth


In glimpse and taste and smell

With grind and crunch on dale and fell

From frozen earth to green stalk’s birth

It rises.


And in that rising is our eye


Which sees the whole but touches part

A joining of the mind and heart

And knows in that unchanging change

There lives Creation
