April

She can’t come

too soon,
sweet boon
to our wintered spirits.
 
She who tickles
trees into greenness,
coaxes colored buds
from barren brown,
shoos away
the stubborn snow.
 
She lures us
from our lairs,
teases wraps
from weighted backs,
dances about us
on the streets
we stroll with
resurrected smiles,
listening to her giggle
In the chatter of birds.
 
She shouts:
Wonderful Me!
 
And we agree.

Usually artists gravitate to other disciplines. A lovely poem indeed.
