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!



(Drawing by Joseph Yeomans for the Spring 2017 cover of Van Wyck Gazette; poem by me inside.)

    Your poem works for me — even in Sarasota.
