Recount

Four children four
seasons—does it begin
with spring or winter?
It all depends—

whether we are dormant
before we live, whether
we can begin again, whether
autumn counts at all.

  1. This one speaks to me especially today. I like its brevity and simplicity, a perfect arrangement of the words, lines, and breaks. I like the word dormant. I like how the poem has only one question mark but is filled with questions. I feel this poem very deeply. Thank you for writing, Amy.
