It is not spring yet
By Laura Zucca-Scott

It is not spring yet
If the sky is green and torn
When wind and hail scream their revenge
You will not win your battle
When the time is not ripe
And the elements remind you
How easily they can break you
So what if you are angry
When the sky is green
And the storm pushes you down
Dream of the days that will come
But do not forget
Anger is not bad
If you can remember why
And the day will come
When delicate blooms
Will tell you
It is time now
Let the spring embrace you
