Spring Snow, Woodstock, and Memories

(for Deborah)

The robins are filling-up on worms
before the spring snow falls
Joni Mitchell’s Woodstock in full stereo
is easing itself through the bose speakers

In the early hours of tomorrow
tcm will broadcast the woodstock movie
Your brother mike said he saw you on film
i will be watching carefully

When the snow falls
When the robins are warm in their nests
I will be thinking about seasons of love and
The poetry and music that filled our lives
