Too much warmth.
The short month-long winter dissolves.
The air turns to 70, then 80 degrees
Ceasing to climb only in the hot July,
when the humid air
Feels like the surface of the sun.
Cloudy mornings start to lessen
Bright blue skies and puffy clouds
Herald the season's change.
The adapting to warm temperature
After the bitter 50-degree-weather is the worst.
(I'm not exaggerating. That really is
Our version of cold.)
I wish it was winter again.
That is the first sign of spring.
