The light passes
from ridge to ridge,
from flower to flower—
the hypaticas, wide-spread
under the light
grow faint— the petals reach inward,
the blue tips bend
toward the bluer heart
and the flowers are lost.

The cornel-buds are still white,
but shadows dart
from the cornel-roots—
black creeps from root to root,
each leaf
cuts another leaf on the grass, shadow seeks shadow,
then both leaf
and leaf-shadow are lost.
