No, it could never be the same-
And yet the cherry tree two doors down
Exploded in pink as if to drown
Our winter blues and put to shame
Old tears- this and a bright blue sky
Enchants- ? No, smacks me in the eye!
It’s not spring yet, but these fine trailers
May cheer a fellow recently numb
With sadness and though spring will come
With one of its most famous failures-
It cannot raise you from the earth;
It cannot give you second birth-
Yet even so, remembering how
Like spring you were, to spring I bow.
