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

or

a bud that’s about to leaf.

.

Then a sparrow sings

and provides reassurance.
