High wire walkers

The squirrels are back, wire-walking, a sure and certain sign of spring.

Finally spring.
The grass greens
Of course
The trees bud
Of course
The tulips
Are halfway up.
But today I know
It is finally spring
Not for the green and growing things,
But for the squirrels,
Now again
They traverse the telephone wires.
Again they know
Conditions are safe.
The high wire walkers
Are back.
Finally spring.
