Lilac leaves...
Pablo Neruda

Lilac
leaves
all the leaves,
explosion
of foliage,
the earth's
trembling
canopy,
cypresses that cleave the air,
whispers of oak,
grass
borne by the wind,
emotive poplar groves,
leaves of eucalyptus
with the contours of 
blood-gorged moons,
leaves,
lips and eyelids,
mouths, eyes, the hair
of the earth,
in the sand
barely
a drop
falls,
treetops brimming
with birdsong,
black chestnut,
last
to summon
sap and hoist it up,
magnolias and pines,
intense scents,
fresh
apples shivering
