The Persistence of Spring In Spite of the Weather

In spite of the lingering cold
which resists the advent of
spring’s warmth, things go on.
The Chocolate Lab continues
to get up, look out the sliding
door for the two large rabbits
who sometimes just sit by the
pond staring at the dog as if
they know the glass is holding
back the dog from the chase.
It is as if they are taunting her.
When the door is opened, the
girl tugs hard at the leash look-
ing for the rabbits now gone but
in the other direction, she sees
a baby bunny scamper back
under the wood walkway. A
robin with a piece of string in
its beak flits from branch to
branch looking for a sturdy
enough one upon which to
build the nest. The mate
supervises.
