Light but firm
was the kiss of snow the sky gave
the dotted tops of all the brown and green.

Perhaps light firmness is seen instead of felt,
for my lips cannot recall receiving such a one.

What has impressed
upon these rose petals?
Other things-

The way the rain follows
or sun interrupts,
the chill in the air before,
or the bowing beneath pressure received-

The way a kiss begins,
and ends.
