Spring Makes Me Wonder
By Josephine Pinckney
ALWAYS my love for you
Was an escaping thing,
Like gray smoke seen through half-green boughs;
Or the shadow of gray smoke wavering
On the bare ground of spring.        5
Why was it never joy—
Clear joy of looking up
Through drifts of porcelain-white plum-blossoms
Into the sky’s blue cup?
