Early Signs

Early Signs

 

All at once dogs and children roam in friendly agitation
where yesterday they stuck to the plowed paths

They climb the mountain of last week’s snow pushed to the roadside
Its ten thousand questions answered

by the lengthening silence of the afternoon
I feel like calling you every hour just to say nothing special

With thunder and warm wind spring starts to shoulder winter aside
Under sky’s sharp azure stone a jeweled cloud leapfrogs mountain
