A Forest Clearing

Amidst a dawning forest clearing
Scattered gravestones’ shadows fall
O’er foxtails in the melting snow,
And from where I stand as dead
And rotted stumps they seem.
Through a morning’s beam
I take a wary woodman’s tread
And cut across the field to know
If on the other side they shall
Appear as newborn granite flowers.
