Forgetting To Snooze

Flowers are about to come out of hiding.
Lilacs are forgetting to snooze.
I can almost hear the march of ants –
one by one –
when will they come out to play?
Have I gotten to be too anxious for the marching of the ants?
Has winter been too lonely?
It may just be the right time to get a little dog.
