Have You?

Have you felt it?
The cold clear air
Of a desert dawn
After a night of rain?


Have you smelt it?
Wet dirt underfoot
A rich scent of life
And death, and birth?


Have you heard it?
The calling of the birds
Ringing in the changing winds
Which carry winter forth?


This is the land we keep
Weathered stone, gnarled trees
Stooped fathers holding spaces
For laughing children
With unwashed faces.
