When they taught me that what mattered most

was not the strict iambic line goose-stepping

over the page but the variations

in that line and the tension produced

on the ear by the surprise of difference,

I understood yet didn't understand

exactly, until just now, years later

in spring, with the trees already lacy

and camellias blowsy with middle age,

I looked out and saw what a cold front had done

to the garden, sweeping in like common language,

unexpected in the sensuous

extravagance of a Maryland spring.

There was a dark edge around each flower

as if it had been outlined in ink

instead of frost, and the tension I felt

between the expected and actual

was like that time I came to you, ready

to say goodbye for good, for you had been

a cold front yourself lately, and as I walked in

you laughed and lifted me up in your arms

as if I too were lacy with spring

instead of middle aged like the camellias,

and I thought: so this is Poetry!
