About This Poem

 

"As spring turned and the hills went yellow, I kept going back to walk around the empty lake—the grass there kept its color a month after everything else had withered. Then it went too. I couldn't quite convince myself that life would return; it felt like a foretaste of the greater change. And this was the world in which a love poem seemed possible, even necessary."
—Noah Warren
