The Spring Parade || Edward Hemstreet

Boy shakes a branch
for Sakura confetti,
beginning the Spring parade,
the vernal celebration—
floats of bustling bees
hop with breeding hares,
sway to surging songs
within the throats of birds;
and all throughout the grasses,
a tremulous design:
sweet and freshened breezes
to cool all heated hearts.
and to end the jubilee
a glass of Sky champagne—
sends the fauna fleeing,
the Boy back to his home.
