1974 by Rod McKuen
from Seasons in the Sun
Before befriending butterflies
you have to meet with midnight moths.
Perspective comes when poles are far enough apart
to have horizons at both ends.
So trampling through the night together
lying close with moonlight faces
will never be enough.
We’ll have to beat each other down by daylight
to understand why love is love
and why it’s come to us in March
three months ahead of summer.
avec bisous doré sur tranches,

Proverbe du Jour: April is the tuning fork for the summer months ahead. – Rod McKuen
