April First--By Mary A. Couch--United States

April First

Fool’s day
I watch crocus,
and green leaves poke through earth
beneath dawn’s blooming sapphire sky.
Feel gentle breeze tug at my jacket sleeves.
Wind becomes brisk, blue sky darkens.
White flakes begin to fall,
“Yes, it’s April
Fool’s Day!”
