Each spring the people of he prairies,from the Dakotas, up through Saskatchewan and Manitoba watch and wait for the Red River to flood.

 The Crows are mobbing in the crossroads.
The snow is slipping away. Down
the coulee bottom the catkins
are crawling up the willows:
Little silver pussies breaking from
their winter sleep.
Soon the coulees will be loud
with melt water running. Running
For Hudson’s Bay far away north;
as winter’s moisture becomes spring’s flood.
The vernal green mantle will shortly follow.
Spring is a tease and spring is a terror
Floods and new life blizzards and gentle rain
Seed time looking for harvest
Spring on the northern plains.
