Seasonal Notes

Denise Riley

Late March, 2013

Wry day.  Winter, of you

We’ve had enough.  And I have

Had enough of sniping memory

Or strappy agapanthus leaves in sleet

Gone orange at their tips, weak leather.

This charged air has a keen and whitish feel

That stings a little, but has gaiety.  So, human

You, I’ll hand you back to your own camouflage

Not as ‘bleak weather’, though.  You might.
