Jane MonheitWaters Of March

A stick, a stone, it's the end of the road It's the rest of a stump, it's a little alone It's a sliver of glass, it is life, it's the sun It is night, it is death, it's a trap, it's a gun The oak when it blooms A fox in the brush, the knot in the wood The song of a thrush, the wood of the wind A cliff, a fall, a scratch, a lump, it is nothing at all It's the wind blowing free, it's the end of a slope It's a beam, it's a void, it's a hunch, it's a hope And the riverbank talks of the waters of March It's the end of all strain, it's the joy in your heart The foot, the ground, the flesh and the bone The beat of the road, a slingshot stone A fish, a flash, a silvery glow A fight, a bet, the range of a bow The bed of the well, the end of the line The dismay in the face, it's a loss, it's a find A spear, a spike, a point, a nail A drip, a drop, the end of the tale A truckload of bricks, in the soft morning light The shot of a gun in the dead of the night A mile, a must, a thrust, a bump It's a girl, it's a rhyme, it's a cold, it's the mumps The plan of the house the body in bed And the car that got stuck, it's the mud, it's the mud A float, a drift, a flight, a wing A hawk, a quail, the promise of spring And the riverbank talks of the waters of March It's the end of all strain, it's the joy in your heart A snake, a stick, it is John, it is Joe It's a thorn in your hand or a cut on your toe A point, a grain, a bee, a bite, a blink, a buzzard A sudden stroke of night A pin, a needle, a sting, a pain A snail, a riddle, a wasp, a stain A pass in the mountains, a horse and a mule In the distance the shelves, grow three shadows of blue And the riverbank talks of the waters of March It's the promise of life in your heart, in your heart A stick, a stone, the end of the load The rest of the stump, a lonesome road A sliver of glass, a life, a sun A night, a death, the end of the run And the riverbank talks of the waters of March It's the end of all strain, it's the joy in your heart
