"Persephone! Pretty One. Show your face!"

Ah, Spring, the Great Lakes environs awaits,
shivering your welcome and warming melt,
waxing daylight as the winter's blahs abates.
Yes, we in the snow-belt find your move svelte.

Persephone! Pretty one! Show your face!
Flirt with frosted earth to tweak the cattails,
pussywillows first; the hares foxes chase;
the mallards on melt-water’s icy trails.

Sweet tease! Bring songbirds, red-wing blackbirds back.
Drop the snow and drape the trillium's cloak,
and don the earth, the oak, a dress attack;
sign us the breakout, all hearth-hunkered folk.

Winter weary and frigid weather fans:
More pleasures altogether are the plans!
