My window is open

Facebook brings news of sand hills winging north in Indiana and Michigan.  My window is open. No cranes yet here is my part of Illinois.  Still.  My window is open.

I wait for the sand hill cranes
With the window open.
I need external signs
Of spring,
So I wait
Window open.
The snow melts.
There is more snow to come tonight.
But the cranes
The cranes
Have been heard
In Indiana and Michigan.
My window is open.
I await the cranes
High up.
My window
Is open.
