February-Fill-Dike

February fills dikes, overflows fields
and streams, turns paths to slippery ooze.
Petulant winds crease the surface of the lake
and agitate the fast flowing river.
Hail and sunshine play follow-my-leader

and tight clusters of dark green leaves.

Daffodils force green shoots through layers of leaf mould.
