Signs of Spring

the trail looks the same today

brown colors of early Spring
some snow and there may
be more in our Wisconsin April

yet the sounds tell more of the story

bird songs again
and now
for the first time this year

we hear frogs sing
from ponds in fields

the trail is more alive today

Poem by Ellen Grace Olinger

we drove North

we drove North
to see fall colors

along the way
snow fell and
lightly covered

fields of soybeans,
corn, and other crops

and the wind
painted one side
of tall trees
with the snow

today

Two Poems

to the store
on old beloved roads
light and wind
through fields of corn
birds fly together

(2013)

so many years
since my father
lived on this earth

yet when I was
in town again
this summer

even with so much
change

I thought

he would still
know his way
home

(2016)

Perhaps

perhaps
we know
we have found
our home

when the same
sights touch
our hearts deeply
year after year

Queen Anne’s Lace
and warm August
days, gardens,
and fields
