The Grass Weeps

                             The Grass Weeps

Grass on ditch bank kneeling prayerfully.
Rain and snow forced it down.
Weary and weeping, bowed at the edge.
Damp, recent heaviness.

Sun is out and the tall tufts over a foot long glisten.
Moistness of contrasting dirt with brown blades.
Accentuated in the softness of morning breaking dawn.
Spring soon will come and burden just a memory.
