If you must, litigate, investigate, castigate
But do take time to notice the spring!
See what was said; say what was heard,
Speak of Russia, Russian hackers
But do not interre the newborn spring.
Making sure they buttress answers,
Ignores the rainbows, the empty feeders,
Much too engaged to notice spring.
Fervor, fury, fiendish, friendly
Too preoccupied to view the bloom,
Too engaged to salute the Solstice.
Ah, but if you would view the season,
Quick furry critters breaking cover,
Spreading violets, white hydrangea.
Would, that you would choose to see!
This and that will all be totaled, but,
Only eyes see the grasses’ splendor,
Ears hear geese, and cooing doves
Could you but wake right now and see!
