Star Spangled banner in spring; poem by Thomas Rogers Muyunga Mukasa


This balmy spring,

Once again a welcome moment,

swans swimming in the pond,

the woodpecker bang, bang, bang.

 

An occasional clear sky,

The sun a fiery globe,

A puddle here and there,

The snow giving up its horde.

 

The banner on a lofty perch,

Spread fully by a blowing wind,

Dotted glimming glint,

Of random stars and stripes.
