It's clear like a bell

Winter is over
the wheel has turned
spring has arrived

Trees drunken from abiding
a bumper crop of rain
throwing out leaves and flower buds
like nobody's business

The spring prankster
perhaps a rabbit
has been busy
germinating seeds
hiding painted eggs
and stirring chocolate

We have chopped off
an hour of sunlight
off of the morning
tacking it onto
the evening and
deluded ourselves
into thinking
that the day
is actually longer

small cosmopolitan butterflies
migrate northward
in the millions
moving as part of the Dow
they are fortunately
of our foolishness
