SAVE FOR WHEN SPRING GETS HERE (ASSUMING IT WILL)

trees early spring

This was written on the arrival of a long-delayed springtime, after a long-lingering winter, and published on April 12, 1989:

SPRING BREAK

Everyone who felt good today
after seeing the first green buds
on the trees

should rise at 10 A.M.
from their desks, computers, beds,
or steering wheels,

find a window to admire
the new green world
and yell as loud as possible:

“We Made It!”
