bloomington, indiana / weather forecast poem

beck chapel at indiana university. bloomington, indiana

bloomington, indiana / 55℉ - cloudy

a hungry spring

approaches the table,

asks for a seat at the banquet.

a full but not quite

satisfied

winter

dabs the corner of his mouth

with a napkin

mumbles 'not yet'

then grabs still more with both hands

spring turns away

and sighs.

just a little longer

she thinks

just a little longer
