(Link>) Chartreuse

Bright green leaves a-way up high
shout "Joy!" against the sunny sky

"Halleluhu . . . etz pri v'chol arazim"*
Days like this are like a waking dream
Praise the Maker ba-m'romim

*Psalm 148: "Praise Him . . . fruit trees and all cedars . . . "

ba-m'romim--in the exalted heights

This is the first poem written on the subway in the new notebook. I need one with a spiral-bound top, though--I need to be able to flip the pages easily.
