The crocuses came early again this year

Is it so dreadful down there
that you risk everything
to thrust your white heads
into the wind

or do the spiders
play tricks on you
whispering fibs
about how it is warm
and ready

you did the same thing last year
poking up
like impatient children
while the frost waited
like a fox

then again
who am I to say
it is wrong to hurry

to shudder
at your life
short but bright.
