The Anticipation Proclamation


In anticipation of days to come...

No, not the Emancipation Proclamation 
which is the subject of this chuckle...

Summer will come again 
Its colours slip between 
Heaven and earth and turn its girth 
From white to glorious green 

First spring will stretch its legs 
Giggle and wiggle toes 
And tickle limbs with budded hymns 
That burst into full rose 

Where Old Man Winter’s chill 
Is still in snow-full swing 
His numbered numbing days of white-blue grays 
Will soon fall prey to spring 

Then we will stretch our legs 
And wiggle bare foot toes 
And splash into the green-gold-blue 
Of summer’s sweet hellos 

All children, young and old 
Beneath the beaming sky 
Where summer is a flower-kiss 
And time, a butterfly
