The Houses on the Mountain

The houses on the mountain
Disappear in spring;
The maples and the willows
Cover everything.

They stand so stark in winter
Only waiting for
The jonquils and the lilies,
And the jumping juniper!

These are scary times. Prepare yourself to take a stand for what is right. God damn it, just be kind!
