The Linden — A Poem



“Linden Tree” — C.Birde, 8/16


Linger beneath the linden —

that tree of bees

and heart-shaped leaves.

We’ll spread a blanket

in restless shade

over the drowsing heads

of sweet clover,

and name the birds’

erratic patterns

scrawled across the sky.

Together, we’ll drift

as Summer slips

us by.


— C.Birde, 8/16
