bonfires green

"This spring as it comes bursts up in bonfires green"

- Opening line from poem "The Enkindled Spring" by D.H. Lawrence.

Indeed, the enkindled bonfires green,
eye-popping scintillating green,
because they have been too long gone green,
greener-than-any-other-green green
flaring from the damp earth.

Bonfires around the nature center, green.

Eyes too weary of winter's gray drink
deep the bonfires green
until their retinas scream with delight.
Yes, that green.
