Spring in Colorado

even before solstice,
    the sun warmed the air, and
    warmed the ground
    encouraging hyacinths,
        daffodils, and cyclists
    out of winter's lethargy

despite the calendar
    despite the early, though
    need to store the skis,
        lonely in a garage corner
    despite the narcissus' arrival

I could not let go of winter.
    budding trees, longer days ~ nothing
    wrestled winter away until
    last night, spring (for me) arrived
        with the smell of rain; and let go
    overnight, turning again to snow
