Dog rose

Heart-shaped petals curved like the lip
Of a curling shell. A bell with a golden
Tassel for a tongue. Cream upon cream
Upon berries; swans' wings tucked about dawn.
A forest of radiant buttercups guarding
A hillock of magic lawn. Sunbursts
Of rays translucent like water, gleaming
Green as dew-drenched blades. Sweetness
Of dusky moth-light scattered at noon.
Rebirth of blossom in green-apple time.
