	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.
