Dancing Around the Sun

Among the reds, oranges and bronzes,
the occasional yellow elm
splashes out a reminder:

that early daffodils
are just months away;
that in less than seven weeks
our days will begin to lengthen;

that the dark time of year
is the slow mid night waltz
of our dance around the sun
before the excessive,
exuberant cha-cha
of a new spring.
