Poem 2

April 2

Oh, just because

the tulips are poking up in little burly clumps

and

this morning there was pink

mixed with the gray

over the almost snowless hills

and

even though

opening windows for fresh air

seems like a reasonable thing to do

on a Saturday afternoon while stripping beds

and shaking carpets

and

despite the fact

that meadowlarks and bluebirds have made

their presence known,

I’m not taking off the storms

quite yet.
