Signs of Springtime

now the sun rides
higher in the skies,
days get longer 
and warmer.

leaves sprout on 
bare branches.
grass begins to 
green and grow,


flower departments,
have summer flowers,
as if to show us 
what to expect.

we attended a
two-year old's 
birthday party.

ice cream all over
his face, loving it!


then his first bicycle.


legs too short to 
reach the ground,
so his dad had to
push the bike.

a tired dad stopped
pushing, and a young 
voice chirped "again!"

signs of springtime!

  1. tender, hopeful, expectant … I love this:

    ” and a young
    voice chirped “again!”

    and to my mind, that’s where this forward-looking poem could finish, this time without your trademark reprise …

    “Chirped” is PERFECT!
