Winter Makes a Last Pitch

WINTER MAKES ITS LAST PITCH

this is today’s news flash
winter makes its last pitch
winter wants one more say
winter does not want to go

quietly

winter makes itself heard
in beginning of spring
winter steals dewdrops
from mornings of early April

winter replaces April showers
with assorted crystals and flakes
April stands down
but only for a moment

April lets winter
have its last say today
for tomorrow April knows
who will rule, who will reign

and winter leaves
