Hockey's Last Days

7:11 on 3/13
And we've seen all the hockey
this season will bring.
It's high time its over
though a sad reminisce --
Until baseball & track
it is something to miss.

But spring will be bounding
from these damp mountain dells
bringing seasons of green to
these grey wooded hills
When the water from pack ice
will once again flow
sparkling in sunlight and cold as the snow.

And the sport of all outdoors will beckon and call
and draw us to haul guideboat down from the wall
to seek anew ventures as old as the hills,
as old as the erratics
that idly stand by
watching mere mortals pass
with all permanence of a mayfly.
