Forthysia

April 1st
April is determined to

play its tricks on us.

We should be dancing

in the rain among daffodils

on a carpet of velvety mosses

that hide earthworms under

their mantle of green.

But, earth’s blanket

is, again, a white shawl,

the only dance –

flakes whirling in wind.

A few secrets are revealed:

goldfinches turn bright yellow,

the color of spring’s first blooms.
