MOCK SPRING March 2016

The sun is warm today,
brightly encouraging, gently
teasing the trees to bloom.
It is too early for spring
I want to tell the trees.
But they are bursting with
enthusiasm and cannot wait.
They do not remember other years
when, tricked by a mock spring,
they suffered the bites of frost.

And I, like the trees,
am too eager to pack away
my sweaters and coats, and
rejoice in warmth again. But,
I must not be mocked, for
I remember when I bloomed
in joyous anticipation, only to be
disappointed and hurt when life
turned it’s cold shoulder to me.
