Lighter Nights

     Lighter Nights

Shorter, lighter nights have started.
TV weather map displays it:
Longer days and higher sun,
Shorter darkness, earlier dawn.

How the mood and body says it!
These days it
Grants energy so sorely needed
Wiinter long
When stuck inside, one’s summer song
Faint, indistinct.
It’s May. I think
The best is still to come:

Humming, bees,
Explodng trees,
Flowers, sky…
‘When “ The grass is as high
As an elephant’s eye”*

Oh, if I
Could have and save
These lighter nights,
The days between
I’d call it sweet, sweet heaven
All my waking days in Sweden.
