Marrows of Spring- Michael Erickson

Harrow me to the bone,

And lay open the wounds of winter.

Wash clean this face,

So long buried beneath a darkening plain.

Let this soul heal from the inside out,

And renew as the bulbs of spring take to stalk and leaf.

Call down with sun and warm rain,

Nourish me in rich sweet earth.

Bring forth my marrow,

that I may grow.
