The arrival of spring (cathe waller)

The arrival of spring (cathe waller)

on the last day of winter i went to bed
Harsh winds rainstorms beating my head
Houses trees with a sucked-out look
New year flaked from the old one’s hook

Then overnight such a change of heart
Spring come home with her confectionery cart
Hundreds-and-thousands strewn in the breeze
Houses sampling them as well as the trees

People savouring them in punts on the river
Earth knee-deep in them praising the giver
So (blankets off) i’m out in the streets
Glutton for spring and her burst bag of sweets
