    A Morning in Early Spring
    By jo spumoni

    New leaves gleam from barren branches
    And a newborn fawn
    Dappled with spots and tentative sunshine
    Struggles on new hoofs

    We peel off our jackets slowly
    Like butterflies emerging from wool cocoons
    And breath in the morning
    Savoring solid ground beneath our feet

    We students buckle under the weight of textbooks
    Filled with old ideas and ancient history
    So we can learn from those who die
    And pass the knowledge on

    The Maya had the maize gods
    The Incas had the Sun
    The Christians had Christ
    And I have today
