Spring Yearning

Spring Yearning
by Betsy McKenzie

Cautious, peeping out to see if it’s safe
To start living again. Breathing
Sighs of relief,
They turn their faces,
Straining blind into the sun’s warmth.
Unfurl their leaves, like tiny
Umberellas, parasols.
Mayapples leaning out to catch
Sunfall between the shadows
Of the trees. They bow and
Shiver in the wind.
