  • 80 degrees in March
    unheard of in Vermont
    coddled some early explosion of colors
    Forsythia doesn't usually bloom until
    much later than March...
    ...on a gray chilly Easter April day
    the bright yellow
    lit up the bleakness
    the absence of sun brings
    before the Spring
    palette reigns
    I won't complain
    as the grace of yellow
    breathes hope of warm sun
    popping buds
    and blossoms
    into the still-gray Vermont is in
    Early April
