A Poem for Valentine’s Day: I’m Counting by Rona Fitzgerald

snowdrop

I’m counting

the crocuses are out, purple and yellow, encircled
with slender snowdrops, soul lanterns on the Ganges.

the sparkle is back in your eye, another spring
taking bloom. I’m glad we weathered twenty one.

that even when the wolf gnawed my soul,
I could see light, feeling the consolation of words

I still hear that strident bird sounding his charms
at all hours, although you and I now enjoy

a more subtle melody
folded together like a cello
on its side, heart beat harmony
