Poetry Friday: Cold Spring

Today I'm playing fantasy Poetry Friday, imagining spring. Helping me out in my delusion is Lawrence Raab with his beautiful "Cold Spring."

"Cold Spring"

The last few gray sheets of snow are gone,
winter’s scraps and leavings lowered
to a common level. A sudden jolt
of weather pushed us outside, and now
this larger world once again belongs to us.
I stand at the edge of it...

(Please do read the rest of the poem here. It's a good one.)

AmoXcalli is on the roundup. Head on over and celebrate.
