Title:WHEN IT IS STILL WINTER   Writer:TIMOTHY GAGER

 

My Valspar sailcloth walls,
against the snow
on the windowsill
needed a coat
of new paint.

Your tracks on my front walkway
are now covered so clean —
You left when it was falling,
perhaps you were never here at all
but I know you've visited
a hundred thousand times 
this morning;
 like a faint song
I heard birds singing
of springtime.
