Lengthening Days

last heavy snowfall—
behind the plough
a crop of crows                            ek

lengthening days—
early worms break ground             ew

wet dirt
where I planted grass—
small blue butterflies                     zpr

cows squelch in the mud               
by the trough                              ek

past the horses
under the noonday sun—
a new potato field                        ew

in the meadow
children running barefoot               zpr
