In the Bud by Joyce Todd McBride

In the bud
waiting for the flood
new green 
after rain

We'll be gone
when the pines grow tall
this we know
but never learn

Apple, water, angel, bird, and every leaf
these are all
things that fall
What will you 
throw into the sea
from the tallest tree flying on two feet?
There you go
higher than the bird
commes toutes fleurs
all to fall to earth.

In the bud
waiting for the bloom
none too late
none too soon

well the wind can take
the longest way around
you think you're lost
but you are found

Apple, water, angel, bird...
