Poetry
Hibernation
Imagine rising from your basement bed
After a sleep so long
It seems another lifetime, dreaming
Of green blueberry days, moist thimbleberries --
To struggle awake, shrug on your warm jacket,
Make your bleary way up the stairs
Out of the house
Into air sharp with snow,
Loud with cardinal song,
To take up again your life --
Stepping, hungry, into that shattering light.
-- Robin Chapman
