They Tell Us It Will Come!

They Tell Us It Will Come!

Oh! Oh! Oh!
There they are!
What joy!
What precious
Hope they
Bring!

Less than one
Quarter inch they are.

After this frozen,
Exhaustive,
Bludgeoning
Winter.

Pushing sweetly through
The ugly chain link fence
That “hides” the dreary
Expressway –
Cars whizzing by
Headed home.

Popping out from
Ancient, wizened,
Gnarled gray vines.

These optimistic,
Tiny amber and moss
Leaflets press outward.

They could not be more
Lovely.
The very first brave
Signs of spring.
