It was a rainy, cold day today--
A coat-changing day.
A fall coat needed for morning spring, and
a winter coat pulled close for springtime eve.
We think to ourselves,
will we ever get a reprieve
from blustery winds and swirling, rotted leaves?
And just when hope falters from gloomy clouds we seemingly can never cleave,
we spot glimpses of new birth cloaked in soft, baby green.
