First Light

The first summer oriole
Both color and choral.

The summer equinox
Redoubles the lake light.

A sun dog in the north
Melts the eye of ice.

Initial inches of rain
Produce more grain.

Foremost the waterways
Must have their say.

Primary to the present
The future having no forests.

Earlier to being right
Honesty has plain sight.

Latest to wake
A young garter snake.

A maiden dragonfly
Cuts close to eventide.

Pioneers to these places
New growth races.

The first river otters
Return to our waters.
