To The Winter That Was

For those of us who live in the colder regions of the United States, and had to live through that miserable winter of previous months, here is a wonderfully succinct poem from the latest issue of Dappled Things.

April Error
Sister Mary Catherine Vukmanic, OSU

A robin sang “April.”
My heart did the same,
And a calendar hailed
The month of that name.

But Nature, distracted,
Mismanaged things so;
She sent with the springtime
Not flower, but snow.
