The days began to grow longer, still light out at 5 pm when my work day ends…
Shadows growing longer
The first Robin appeared, a harbinger of Spring
And a Crocus shot up through the ground because the weather had turned so warm
The Eagles were still around, not ready to fly North just yet, even though the weather was warm
And the call of the Red Winged Blackbirds could be heard, once again signaling a change of seasons
But then we went from this
Today is the first day of spring and it surely has not sprung here yet.
