Blood SnowThink of blood in a leaf,how it feeds the stalkuntil it dries like tearsand every blossom drops.And of sugar in the maple,how it runs like bloodfrom the wound in its side,and everyone is fed.Think of blood in the wrist,how it is sent therechamber by chamber,with every beat counted.And of the leaves of heart,opening and closing,running against death,until it lies down in the snow.
