Monday is being a girl arriving
at a picnic with a muffin in a paper bag
while other people unpack
beautiful baskets of cheeses, breads,
grapes, fried chicken, deviled eggs,
berries, nuts, salads, cakes, plates,
cloth napkins, silverware, glasses, wine,
lemonade, books, and blankets
to spread beneath the heavenly branches
of a blooming spring tree.
