When the Spring Is Done

The day is done in the spring.
The dusk even has a memory
Of the early dawn.
The stars have arrived
In the night sky
Their intensity forgets not
That they own the night,
But high above.
From the ant hill of life
I see the eternal height of bliss.
The cosmos is shiny
It is not devoid of light
In the dark sprawling sky.
The thrills of spring
Brings visions of survival.
Who would not want to depart
With the spring
And go forever
Where the spring goes?
The river imitates the spring;
It has no particular destination
It is only destined to flow.
