Poem included in A Canadian Anthology of Poetry:

You masked within the rhubarb, the strawberries,

your red hair and sun-kissed skin a veil of delight

Our gray forms replaced by a greenness, a springtide

Devotion’s flame furling in our sensibilities

I call your name

A blue jay answers

Your laugh is my emotion, my attachment, my enchantment

I climb upon your form with regard and you kiss me

A cherished, able kiss from a vigorous and enduring mouth

Open and forceful

A courage that would last within the entanglement,

the vividness, the acceptance of memory

-by E. L. Schoeman
