“The substance of things hoped for”
As the garden sleeps
with tender plants surrounded
by piles of mulch
He plants the bulbs
that will bloom in the spring

“The evidence of things unseen”
Long after the flowers wither
under early summer’s sun
the tall slender leaves
of daffodil, iris, hyacinth and tulip
bear evidence
of next year’s flowers
