The Flower Fields 
Ovid recalled the release of salacious and fertile goats and hares while the crowds gathered to celebrate the Roman festival of spring and rebirth Floralia pelted themselves with vetches each May 1. 

This rite of spring is the rootstalk from which May Day now stems. The workers of the world gather, steel themselves, march on.
What we’re saying is: today is a good day for flowers or the haymarket. It’s a good day to walk with someone or march with someone. It’s a good day for what we will. If you have a bike and a satchel handy, meet us. We’re pedaling to a picnic by the water in the breeze.

Stonehenge, Wiltshire, England
At the Spring Equinox, day and night are of equal length all over the world. 
The sun’s journey along the horizon — its position as it kissed the giant columnated stones — was used as a seasonal calendar by the monument’s builders five thousand years ago. 
Today at dawn, druids and pagans gather at that ancient site to celebrate the Spring Equinox, and welcome the new season.

Somewhere
a black bear
has just risen from sleep
and is staring

down the mountain.
All night
in the brisk and shallow restlessness
of early spring

I think of her,
her four black fists
flicking the gravel,
her tongue

like a red fire
touching the grass,
the cold water.
There is only one question:

how to love this world.
I think of her
rising
like a black and leafy ledge

to sharpen her claws against
the silence
of the trees.
Whatever else

my life is
with its poems
and its music
and its glass cities,

it is also this dazzling darkness
coming
down the mountain,
breathing and tasting;

all day I think of her–
her white teeth,
her wordlessness,
her perfect love.
