I’ve known the Varied Thrush’s call
for thirteen years
and have expected spring to come
for more years than that
where has that certainty got me?
Looking for a comfortable fold
to latch onto
hasn’t made me happier or
more comfortable
spring rains still drive worms
out of the soil
for all that time.
