Spring’s Return

There’s a cloud shadow

across the field.

Makes it look like the ground’s just been plowed,

but it’s only March–

too soon, too wet, too cold

to farm, just yet.

Winter is holding out, Spring is still at bay.

The grass is damp and

matted down with the weight

of Winter’s snows and freezing rains.

The sun warms my face,

the breeze chills my skin.

Another day I wait for Spring’s return.
