THE SNOW FAIRIES
The calendar said early spring
although the snow fairies said winter.
They danced and whirled and swirled
across the pavement
sashaying until all of a sudden,
they looked like they forgot their steps;
they scattered every which way
and the wind just laughed
I figure the snow fairies live with the wind
he pushes them: sometimes angrily
but most of the time, gently.
He is partially responsible for ….
The brilliant little diamonds on their tiny crowns
these diamonds end up lying at the side of the road,
crashed and clunked and run over by unsuspecting motorists
Now it’s April Fool’s Day
and the weather joke continues
Spring is scared to come back
and take her rightful place
We pray she won’t be scared much longer
