Sylvan

jam on wheat
sticky tiny fingers
checkered picnic blanket

pale green marks
collect upon knees
ruined Sunday’s best

wooded journey opens
cool clearings comfort
murky forests enclose

the fallen oak
a prone giant
still ever resilient

humid afternoons serve
as the onions cut
making angels to cry

their fat tears
pelt your soft head
drip off your chin
