Spring is Here Again

Lips crack
Cuz the heat has been on.
Fingers chap
And turn red in the wind.
Shoulders hunch to nuzzle ears
And shove away the winter chill while
Crocus petals cling to fragile stems and
Sparrows talk about God-knows-what
And mock us from the bushes.

The sidewalks
Turn dark gray and wet
As white flakes fall.
It smells like rain and looks like snow
And spring is here again.
