The Advent of Spring Part 3: Todor Oluic

In the
springtime,
the angels abandon their post
and grace themselves with the presence of buoyant air,
soft sun, comfort and green grass that smells of life itself.
They congregate in valleys
and play their harps,
drink enough ale to loosen them
but not so much to impede their memories of glory,
dance around bonfires barefoot
with bells on their ankles and wrists,
and laugh with wild jubilation.
Then, when they have exhausted their bodies,
they lie upon the grass in silence
and smile as the firmament turns above them
like a sumptuous music box
lined with silk
and time.

All
the while
the Spirit
of Rebirth washes through
every open window,
every inhaling
nostril and
every
space
between
the
trees.
