Robert Schuler
"Verde Que Te Quiero Verde"
after Lorca
green how much I want you green
green wind   green branches
green rain sings in the leaves
out of green shadows trillium sails
the last bright flags of snow
willows bend bronze over hills humped fresh west of town
where fishermen lie on their bellies near springs
waiting for the rising gold-
green dawns of trout
under the moon    a balloon of ice
in the black bed
twisting green mysteries of seeds
