The Undying Heart
by Alice B. Clagett

I'm not that fond
of the north face of a mountain--
all day long, hidden from the sun.

Give me instead a lowland meadow--

not much to notice--

but the very first place
where the snow melts,

and the morning sun
coddles new life
from raw earth.

--a gift of love, 2012
