A Poem by Fanni Sütő


Spring is still sliding on the strings of a guitar
waiting on side-roads
to flash
to splash
the world in
every kind of
Envious ivy -- chains
Cities of glass moss
Yawning grass after a lengthy nap
The lawn-mower is resting in the shed
Jaded rings of melting puddles
Jade drinks of rain-wet maples
Willow, oak, poplar:  sleeping giants
but their frosty lips are already
greening with spring
