jolted

snow trickles away
browbeaten by the returning sun
sublimed into the blue

pavement and bricks
naked as the wintered trees
echo startled footsteps

birdsong and traffic chatter
brash and loud
passing voices erupt saucily

winter’s muffled caution is gone
spring is back
chattering lewdly at us
