AUBADE / Small wonder Tve maUgned you, old fool, and your unrimeliness. Either too early beleaguered earth as if its own revolutions have nothing to do with temperance. or too late you condescend to this So too hot too soon one pink and tender tuUp pushes up through the cold bed of the garden against aU earthly desire to Ue, stiU, dormant, subterranean. This is no time for nice touches. Too fast the flower moves into the season and won't last against the old wind blowing in from the West or the blight of an April freeze beneath the skuU of the land--though that type, Tm told, blooms early and dies young. But I can forgive you when I see the hardy forsythia braving it out by the roadside. Perhaps not aU is nipped by the climate. Along that road seasons race south, making time a matter of geography. And by the time we travel that road, the whole land wiU swelter This year I can weather the early spring. under the spell of heat, the compass rose fuU-blown, the fields ripe. So temper me.
