Oh newness and loveliness

Oh let the leftovers be over

Where are the piping plovers and the bearded irises?

I can wait

Not exactly patient

For 70 degrees, clear eyes and skies

It’s a surprise every year

Thirsty colors and warm breezes

This year banish hay fever and strife

Just take me on carefree walks

Skirting this seesaw life.
