To Make a Spring Collage

Gather a gloss of rhododendron leaves

an electric-blue wing feather

dropped by a nesting jay

a small muddy white mitten

Catch a windblown tatter

of newspaper once dappled

with April raindrops and

trod by a heavy boot

Tear out the advertisements

straw hats suits of pink and aqua

a crystal atomizer

holding essence of freesia

Arrange to suit yourself

Gesso to a sheet of bristol board

preferably pale yellow

Sprinkle with violets
