Bernard Kennedy

Rookie - 178 Points (20 May 1956 / Dublin)

as the frost lifts


the frost is lifting,
so crunching boot ground sounds
soften in the spring,
though fugue like
the air is a cold rhapsody
in dublin south morning.

Hope does not spring,
merely uncoils itself
warmed into joy.
yes, nature is never spent
except
where economic matters
cull the reservoir.
