Spring Things: A Poem by Carol Good

Daffodil in snap
Written by Carol Good

Dry cracked hands crave heat
Reach for snow-soaked soil

Shed layers slowly – no hat today
Dig out my rubber boots

Daylight lingers longer
Especially when we spring ahead

Low gritty drifts grimly hug shade
while bright sun signals green
