Spring Showers

On the city streets, the sidewalk trees are white and green. Their flowers are falling now. Every eddy of wind brings down a new drift of white petals. These settle slowly as snowflakes, strange in the sunlight. The day is bright and warm, weather for bare arms and bare feet. Yet drifts of white lie in the gutters and swirl in the street--spring's farewell to winter.
