They Tell Us It Will Come!

They Tell Us It Will Come!

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

Less than one
Quarter inch they are.

After this frozen,

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 tiny
Amber and moss
Leaflets press
Optimistically outward.

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