An Alternate Reality

The Illusion of Spring

The birds think it’s Spring.
They chirp and they whistle
and cluster at the feeder.

They don’t seem to mind the cold
or notice the deep snow
still sealing in the grass.

They rejoice in the sun
and sing praises to New Life.

I’d like to think it’s Spring, too,
but with my high level reasoning
and my perceptive human senses

I know better –

Don’t I?
