the world's secret

June 19, 2008
By Cara Dorris, Glastonbury, CT

sometimes the world is tired
the buds don’t
bloom on time
still sleeping in
it’s early april

and sometimes the world is angry
letting gentle buttercups
wilt in dismay
shriveled petals
of what could’ve been

and sometimes the world is joyful
for no reason at all
sometimes the world
lets the sky stay blue
keeps the wind warm
lets the trees stay green
in fall
and here is the deepest secret
in the entire world
my darling
sometimes the world
lets me love you
and that’s when

i love the world
