Dutchman's Breeches and the Bookman in Grand Haven, MI

I will be at the Bookman in Grand Haven MI on May 1 declaiming poems and showing a few of my watercolors.  I will be at the Bookman again on June 20 at 6-8 pm with my new book, Between Sweetwater and Sand.  See you there.

Dutchmans Breeches

Delicate dances in strong April winds
blowing off Lake Michigan
Delicate wild flowers grow
Under tall pines
Under high sand dunes
Called Rosy Mound.

Tiny white wild
Flowers tremble on green stems
Dance amid lacey green leaves.
They are called Dutch mans breeches.
Did Dutch men ever dance like this?
