For gardens and all their blooming, from Song.

from The Pear Tree / by Brigit Pegeen Kelly

        Leave off

Your weeping. The rain will keep falling. The crows
Will keep flying. Sit on the ground and wait. Sit
On the ground and wait. Perhaps the bird you planted
Beneath the pear tree…will become…another pear tree.
