Urgent Love

URGENT LOVE

Spring was impatient

this year to be Spring.

Spring was thirsty

NOW

to be Spring.

Famished for the sun

and lonely in her desire,

she awoke one morning

stretched her arms wide

in a yowling urgent

yawn of excitation.

Called back the geese!

Raised the robins to sing!

Frogs to shout their love!

Crocuses to thrill again!

Tulips to drink the colors

from the sun itself!

Spring was impatient

this year to be Spring.
