This Merry spell-died
It has not, not yet...
But upraised its gray, forbidding clouds-
It supreme sure enough has!
Less delightful...yes, perhaps;
Then comes aboriginal spring: crows
In their bleak, black-flight
Notes: here is a iv stanza Haiku, on the ending of season in Minnesota, in 2007. Minnesota is prearranged for its winters going out like a lion, and so it has evidenced so in the period of March, of 2007, when this poem was typewritten. It would appear time of year would simply stop, and springtime would come up in, but it never happens that way. Even the crows have a fundamental quantity of time to adapt to the new season, for the season has helped them vegetate see-through and lean, and has helped the humans in Minnesota to vegetate fat, because they kip in the building somewhat. Then in spring the crows turn fat, and the world instigation escalating lean, they get out of the abode as before long as possible-and next in attendance is no end to their undertakings.
