Another Spring one

The force that through the green fuse drives the flower
Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees
Is my destroyer.
And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose
My youth is bent by the same wintry fever.
                    - Dylan Thomas, The Force That Through the Green Fuse Drives the Flower

One of my assemblages , inspired by the poem, which seems related to the season.

Susan, Very cool, I can feel the motion in this, the life force, both the giver and destroyer.

Before reading the poem, I looked at your assemblage and thought, "That horsie must have done something very, very bad to deserve such punishment."

Then I read the poem and realized he had gotten old and deserved grating.
