April Fools

Tulips Searching for Spring

Tulips Searching for Spring

April Fools

Did spring come in

on a brisk March breeze?

The days warmed under azure skies.

Wood frogs rattled from their pool.

The river flowed swiftly

filled with a vernal flood.

There was hope for the start

of the new season, but April

has given us a tease – snow

and cold temperatures arrive.

As we move forward

into the new month,

we move backwards

into winter’s harsh days.

Spring’s Promise

Spring Tulips

Spring’s Promise

Tonight I hear some sounds

after waking from a reverie.

Is it my neighbors’ voices

talking across their yards,

or the call of geese arriving

from the South for a stopover

to sleep before the journey North?

No matter, spring will not relent

in its steady stride forward,

despite our petty protests.

It is not concerned with

our measures or mortalities –

spring keeps it own promises

and will , after all, prevail.
