New York in April is
a Richard Scarry world
busy busy busy the barges and
fleets of electric bicycles
different characters moving
through parks and streets
the flocks of cherry blossoms
are resting on the boughs
before pushing on to soft
summer fruit and clouds
bustle past as though late for
engagements in Connecticut
sweeping the rain after them
so that drops linger dawdling
children in the sun
