I returned for bird song 
and the glimmer of grass adorned 
in evening light,for cool whispers carried 
on ancient winds and the eternal fragrance 
of molasses,pine,or sliced cucumber. 
Instead,I beheld the silent 
dilapidated farmhouse sink into a grave 
yard,winter's first icy fingers already 
undressing everything.
