Spring by Johanna Ely


has come
and flung
upon this tired world
extremely wet
and green behind the ears
the daffodils aflame
she came
last night
and sang herself a tune
the little old balloon man
whispered her sweet name
she came
into rain
has birthed herself
upon this weary world
bright eyed and winter wise
she collates leaves on trees
the bees
mistake her for a rose
high ho high ho
her blustery refrain
the rain knows
spring has come
the world
all lily lost
and dewy eyed
will never be
the same
