I see the spring dance all over your face in green

you were arrogant before you viewed my willow tree

outside my balcony.

Now you wave at me

with green fingers

and lime smiles.

You twist my words,

Harvard collegiate style,

right where you want them to be--

lime green, willow tree, and

dark skinned branches.
