Yard Work

Lee Evans

Gather the four corners of the sky into your fist,
Like the ends of a blue tarpaulin loaded
With last yearís autumn leaves and snapped branches;
Haul it away behind you across the back yard,
To the edge of the ravine where winterís water seeks its own level,
Piped under the street and between your neighborís houses,
Into the marsh where the first red winged blackbird
Swings on last yearís cattails and chirrups a lyric ode
To the all-encompassing blue tarpaulin of spring chores.
