Packing for Winter

A scattering of green valentines

had spilled upon the ground,

and I bent down to wonder

at the beauty when she appeared,

scurried under and over

the heart-shaped leaves,

her long, thin legs trying to fold 

and pack the tender

green into her lady-bug back,

as if storing summer’s love

letters to read in winter.
