	i step outside

	into a breeze

	too raw for spring

	still tinged by the melting snow.

	

	in a day

	or two

	the last whiteness will be gone

	and the air

	will blunt with warmth.

	

	i take

	in my arms

	birch wood.

	

	an easy burn

	in the days of lengthened light

	

	and i wonder

	toward nights soon to come.

	

	warmer nights

	where the smells of

	birch, ash, and oak,

	will mingle

	with sage and sweat.

	

	and i will see you

	in the dim light

	before the sun.
