Bonus Poem: I Want to Say

Pelham, MA, 2/7/16

I want to say, "Go back! Go back!
This is a momentary crack
In winter's shell! You'll freeze when snaps
Of cold return! Go back and nap!"
And yet, who knows? The daffodil's
Less daffy than a ducky bill,
And flowers whensoe'er it wills,
And soon I'll dig out Wordsworth's poem,
While hosts of yellow bloom at home.

Scott L. Barton
