spring stitched the horizon
budding with French knots of red
			and jade and gold
the underpinning of branches
 began to disappear
as the surface danced 
with pointillism

kelly-green cuffed the lawn
daffodils were pocketed
in among the satin threads
		 of pine bark mulch
	temperatures fluctuated 
and though a layer of white snow 
would still lace the collar of mother maples
it was merely winter’s last kiss

impossible, truly impossible it was
to dress for spring
