Inhale




When fields grow thick
with  green alfalfa
and begin to to flower in mid-June;



when juicy stems 
of timothy grass
raise tall tufts of pastel;



when the sweet scent
of freshly-cut hay
lies drying in sunny windrows;



that's when we shall walk again
on these remote, rural roads
and inhale the memories.
