Invitation to Spring

come, then, season of the dragonfly!     too
long we have hidden indoors,     too long sulked
beneath woolen covers shivering off
clinging winter and its jealous snows.     come
oh sap-giver spring,   fill the buds on the trees,
bring the birds singing day awake,   send your
minions with their fair winds to blow pollen
and seeds hither-thither that green may rein
among the myriad colors of blooms.
we hear your lark even now,     there,   golden
blooms of dandelion and daffodil!
raise up the tulips now to worship sky
and we shall dance in pools of rain singing
of magic and hope reborn of April.
