It's spring, so once more I'm in the mood
To walk onto the floodplain, and intrude.
Coiled, the little snake, all in light green
Moves not, nor should it, fitting the scene.
Its tongue vibrates. I walk around
The spot it claims, a sacred ground?
It all is, like here where I say I can't
Avoid the crushing of an ant.
What wonder it would be to know
All the birdsong here in times ago!
Today I hear the singing here and there,
Occasions to be glad or to despair.
There goes the woodchuck, see it rush
To hide, unencumbered by the mush
Of gray matter between my ears.
The hiss! The alarm raised by the deer,
Bound off, is what I hear. To a tee
I listen for where a wood thrush might be
Sounding its flutelike, ethereal song.
At last I hear one, but it took walking long.
So much depends upon one single butterfly
And just one little bee! So, what good am I?
With powers the forces of Nature imbue us
Of such magnitude, yet superfluous!
Nothing do I do for the awesome balance.
Why, my instantaneous disappearance
Would warrant jubilant dancing from every one
Of the creatures under the moon and the sun!
But I do contribute, reluctantly, my blood
To mosquitoes, bounty of the springtide flood.
