spring sprung earlier this year
it seems to spring faster
year after year

some say it’s global warming
some say all is well
it’s getting warmer as far as I can tell

but hey, what do i know?
the yellow jonquil adjacent to our drive
loves the earlier wake up call

proudly it displays its flower
now in a jar adjacent to our tv
thanks to our daughter

it would have shriveled soon anyway
why not bring it inside
with us humans on display?

spring sprung earlier this year
today it was cold and rainy
the start of blackberry winter

some say a cold day is proof
that global warming is a spoof
a hoax, a conservative witch hunt

but hey, all i know is
my daughter picks jonquils
earlier each year
