March 26, 1974

by Richard Wilbur

The air was soft, the ground still cold. 
In wet dull pastures where I strolled 
Was something I could not believe. 
Dead grass appeared to slide and heave, 
Though still too frozen-flat to stir, 
And rocks to twitch, and all to blur. 
What was this rippling of the land? 
Was matter getting out of hand 
And making free with natural law? 
I stopped and blinked, and then I saw 
A fact as eerie as a dream. 
There was a subtle flood of stream 
Moving upon the face of things. 
It came from standing pools and springs 
And what of snow was still around; 
It came of winter's giving ground 
So that the freeze was coming out, 
As when a set mind, blessed by doubt, 
Relaxes into mother-wit. 
Flowers, I said, will come of it.
