Morning music

The music began in the wedding sharply,
 
A long progress of silk women filing past
 
With their pots on their heads, the music
 
 Well before them, and trees looked on
 
In their dusty leaves and dense shadows
 
The shadows went everywhere they went
 
The trees remained   there, only shadows.
 
 
 
The birds went their bit, an extra furlong
 
Than yesterday from trees shadows went
 
The trees stayed green, their shadows went
 
And they stayed where they were with birds.
 
The tree here did not stay wherever it was
 
Its shadow would   go away never to come.
