Spring is fighting

Spring is fighting,
To burst through all the cold,
and dry the waterlogged ground,
Trees and some roads halfway underwater,
The Sun giving us a hopeful diversion
and working his best
to dry up these flooded
sea bottoms, these meandering Lake Champlain valleys.
Yellow-Green or Green-Yellow is the crayon
I would use to color
the maple leaves
just starting to show their intention
of living,
full with water,
ready to burst into our familiar
comforting
summer
Green.
