My Cart 


April, Sun, Wind
Arlene Gay Levine


and I want to stand forever
silently admiring
the play of clouds, like great white
wings, flowing wildly across
the blue body of sky
Buffeted, morphing from
vast forms of feathery
light into subtle wisps,
they vanish
as the power of Aprilís
bracing airstream clears
the azure field into
one great spirit,
enfolding every thing
that was, is and will be.
