  • The purple heads of the crocus made their appearance two weeks ago,
    As the green limbs of the daffodils and tulips seem to reach for air.
    The buds on the lilacs prepare for their fragrant debut before April's end.
    Most of the songbirds have found their way back

    I wait for the swamp robins and the hummers to make themselves known
    As spring inhales,
    Winter exhales
    As together they dance.
