"Some Thoughts on Life and Death"

A poem by John Hearn.

Some Thoughts on Life and Death

Now the spring rains fall,
Calling green shoots from the bare earth,
To reach for the sun.
Should I love this rain,
Remembering that dark days
Of cold death will come?
I sowed no life here,
Nor willed autumn's killing frost,
Free to grow towards light.
