to call it spring

spring is beginning and,
has begun here, for us.

with books and ducklings,
flowers and seedlings,
days spent lying on quilts under trees,
children smiling and laughing,
i'm calling it spring.

we are waiting to hear from colleges,
drinking tea throughout the day,
rearranging, simplifying, organizing,
i'm calling it spring.

we are leaving windows down,
letting night's cool breeze touch our lips,
piling under quilts as we lay down too late at night,
i'm calling it spring.

it's a day away,
but for us it's been spring for weeks.
and a welcome spring it is.
