Sharing signs of Spring (I made you a poem) Winter has shown its ugly lear
long enough in the Northern hemisphere.

Signs of Spring are finally here!
[More:]
The azaleas are blooming,
the hummers are zooming
and turtledoves are crooning.

Noisy lawnmowers chart paths through the truculent weeds,
and flyover birds stop by to have seeds.

Children trail fingers through thick coats of yellow;
outside once again, we give Spring a warm hello.
The bulbs that didn't rot with all the rain
Are just starting to sprout, green and plain.
I went outside without a coat
And my balcony is no longer a moat.

On March 31st I saw a Robin, a woman on roller blades and an old man on a Harley, so yes it's spring.

Pickup basketball appeared again on the Common last Wednesday after a long hiatus of four or five months. So, that clinches it. When the Dominican guys return for Thursday night soccer, it'll be summer.

I liked your poem! And you are in good company:

in Just-
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame balloonman

whistles far and wee

and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's
spring

when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer
old balloonman whistles
far and wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and

it's
spring
and

the

goat-footed

balloonMan whistles
far
and
wee

—E.E. Cummings

I think we are in ratsí alley
Where the dead men lost their bones.
