Listen to Earth

(Sarah Doughty)

 

Listen to earth:

For

She will tell you much

 

Of love on the ground

And underneath

And in the branches

Of the trees,

Sometimes even launched

From there;

 

From the garden, truth—

Wild and perennial,

Knowing no

Cultivation

But the seasons;

 

Tendril-scent of romance

Glides onto the sky

Over water,

Upended in the course

Each time—

 

Thus approving

The cycle

Of immortal love

 

That touches stellar rings

With which Earth sings
