In bloom

Spring is in town and it's marvellous.

Spring is like a perhaps hand 

(which comes carefully 

out of Nowhere) arranging 

a window, into which people look (while 

people stare

arranging and changing placing 

carefully there a strange 

thing and a known thing here) and

changing everything carefully

spring is like a perhaps 

Hand in a window 

(carefully to 

and fro moving New and 

Old things, while 

people stare carefully 

moving a perhaps 

fraction of flower here placing 

an inch of air there) and

without breaking anything.
