oh july, july i feel you coming
the forests and fields awaken
and it is good to be alive
in this world of sweet air
and growing life.

spring took us all by surprise
we opened the door to let heat inside
yesterday we rode bikes through a tunnel
of white cherry blossoms
and hunted down the honey-secret of lilac
blooming months before its time
last night, last night i dreamt that portland
filled up with gardens and people on bicycles
passing me by on streets lined with fruit trees
and bright colored squashes
oh how the greens and yellows took me by surprise
i broke down in the streets
overcome with nostalgia for this place i'd never been
and now i wonder how we got so far away
from what we could be.
