Marching Valentine

We march because
The trees wouldn’t
And the flowers couldn’t
Though they flew
From where they stood
Weren’t we at one time
The cedars of the earth
All our memories are of gods
Who coupled with our birth-
Mothers now pushing comic books
That strangely tell the truth
If you’ve learned to read it
We march with you in time
O children of the forest
Out of the trees we climb
