March Light

by Elizabeth McCarthy

The heart of winter

has softened,

revealing a golden lamp

searching for spring.

Its angled light, beams

across the horizon

warming February’s

white crusty cover.

Casting long shadows

behind the drooping evergreen

that weeps crystal droplets

upon hearing

the yellow-rumped warbler

flutter and trill,

calling his love

to join him once again

as March lights

the way to spring.
