Poem for Spring: Mewsette Ponders Green

Once Once A late snow And I with early kittens in my belly Hungry, thirsty, cold, Crouched, focused, Raced across this yard in the dusk, Chased that startled rabbit Nearly as big as myself, Filled a need beyond my control; Later, chipmunks scurrying In leaves and mud For my kittens
