Poetry Friday: Spring (Again) by Michael Ryan


I want to post this whole, perfect little poem. As it is, I'm pushing the envelope of fair use by sharing two of the mere five lines of "Spring (Again)." It made me laugh because I go through the same thing every year -- startled by the insistence of the birds. Read it and be happy today.

by Michael Ryan

The birds were louder this morning,
raucous, oblivious, tweeting their teensy bird-brains out.

"tweeting their teensy bird-brains out" Funny, that's how I feel on social media today. ;)

Thank you for sharing that delightful 5-liner to celebrate spring's arrival, Karen.

Happy spring, Jama and Michelle!

That last line takes this from silly (teensy bird-brans) to sublime.
