Spring Song #2

Spring Song 2

It's fun to watch snow
melt
melt
m
    e
l
   t
down, down
into the ground
like a shrinking island
like Atlantis
like a vanishing cloud
poof
poof
plop.

The snow is no more
I can't wait to see
what spring has
in store.
more
puddles?
plop
plop
SPLAT.

Snow is wetter
on days
no better
than a haze
of clouds.

melt
melt
m
    e
l
    t
down, down
into the ground.
Tiny stranded islands
like white white sands
soon they will 
melt
melt
m
    e
l
   t
down, down
into the ground
icicles fall
and hit people
on the 
head-
like that
plink
plink
-smack-

The sun laughs at me
I jump over a snowdrift
it will
melt
melt
m
    e
l
   t
down, down
into the ground
where the gophers dig
where the worms hum
where life
stirs
stirs
stirs...

I should check your blog more often! I like the part about the icicles falling on people. Creative.
