Some Glad Morning by Joyce Sutphen

I've become such a grump. Thank goodness for poets like Joyce Sutphen.

Some Glad Morning

One day, something very old
happened again. The green
came back to the branches,
settling like leafy birds
on the highest twigs;
the ground broke open
as dark as coffee beans.

The clouds took up their
positions in the deep stadium
of the sky, gloving the
bright orb of the sun
before they pitched it
over the horizon.

It was as good as ever:
the air was filled
with the scent of lilacs

and cherry blossoms
sounded their long
whistle down the track
It was some glad morning.

Poem: "Some Glad Morning," by Joyce Sutphen, from Naming the Stars (Holy Cow Press).
