when it is the first time
it seems such a long time
winter is gone
and the sun is young

sit outside after dinner
breathe deep and take a minute
because, right now, I have
all the time in the world

and it is brilliant again
it is alive again
it is warm sparkle
in your eyes, and that makes

you young again
no matter how many times
you have gone around
the sun

tonight, after dinner,
I sit outside because
winter is undone
and once again

the sun is young
