      The Dogwoods

      I remember, in the week
      of the dogwoods, why sometimes
      we give up everything
      for beauty, lose our sense
      and our senses, as we do now
      for these blossoms, sprinkled
      like salt through the dark woods.

      And like the story of pheasants
      with salt on their tails
      to tame them,
      look how we are made helpless
      by a brief explosion
      of petals
      one week in April.
