April 9 Poem - Saga on the edge of the lawn

Prompt - write a poem on a memory

Saga on the edge of the lawn

Hedges of fern,
tribes of Indian pipes,
red "head-ache" flowers,
various shades of moss, and tiny violets
robins who stretch a worm to breaking
just before breakfast. Afterwards
someone sings.

-- Mistryel Walker
