Poem: Almost April Fools

Copyright 2012 by DM Denton

It’s snowing!
April fools!
Though I’m not fooling
and not fooled
any more than
budding daffodils
or growing grass

or crocuses
already full grown
but closed for warmth
and maybe
so they won’t see.

Writing Note: Actually the crocus flowers here have already withered due to the sunny summer temperatures we had the week before last (this is a piece I wrote many years ago…) But it did snow overnight! And the daffodils are bowing low, in homage to Mother Nature…or murmuring something less deferential under their breath?
