Poem: A Cautious Spring

A Cautious Spring

The snow is melting.
The sun is warming.
Tufts of green are showing themselves.

It is a cautious spring.
A slow tease.
Winter refuses to relinquish its grip

and spring will not be denied.
A strange struggle.
An inevitable truth:

Color always wins.

About this poem

Spring has come slowly this year in Vermont. But driving to my favorite diner today, I think it’s finally here. The fields are showing green. At church yesterday one of my parishioners told me her first daffodils are blooming.

It’s like life. Color always wins.

The picture was taken in Fair Haven, VT,  just last week.
