april fools’ pantoum

 

Winter’s final assault of triple fury:

freezing rain, glazed ice, heavy snow,

worse than a typical blizzard’s flurry

deals a vengeful, destructive blow.

 

Freezing rain, glazed ice, heavy snow

covers fences, rooftops and trees;

deals a vengeful, destructive blow

to spring’s warmer, mellow breeze.

 

Covered fences, rooftops and trees

break under weather’s weight, or melt

to spring’s warmer, mellow breeze.

as seasons’ changing moods are felt.

 

Break under weather’s weight, or melt,

a snowman kneels, then dies on grass

as seasons’ changing moods are felt

by robins confused after blustery blast.

 

Weather reports could not predict

worse than a typical blizzard’s flurry;

soon sunshine returns to contradict

winter’s final assault of triple fury.
