First day of spring

I waited and waited for the cranes, but missed them this year.  Still I heard reports, and someone even said she thought of me when she saw and heard the cranes.  On this first day of spring, even with snow on the ground, that is enough sign for me.

I never did hear the cranes
But rather
Heard tell
They flew through
And indeed
Someone thought of me
When they did.
That will
Have to make do.
They flew through
Me with my windows shut.
Someone said
She always thinks of me and cranes
That is enough for me
To know spring
Is not a figment
This year.
Even with more snow on the ground
The cranes flew through
I never did hear them
But instead heard tell.
