A Spring Song

Spring Song


As we walk

the brown gray landscape revealed by melting snow

is brightened by a sun now too high

for it not to be green.


We impatiently look for signs

of what is coming,

a spring wildflower


a bud that’s about to leaf.


Then a sparrow sings

and provides reassurance.



Song Sparrow, Griggs Reservoir
