Tom Montag, Early Spring

Early Spring
Tom Montag

The wind has
let down the sky.

Small birds fly
into afternoon.

We are leaving
winter behind.

The birds know it.
We know it.

All the green things
have been told, though

not all of them
believe it yet.


Tom Montag is the author of In This Place: Selected Poems 1982–2013, This Wrecked World, and The Miles No One Wants. He has been a featured poet at Atticus Review, Contemporary American Voices, Houseboat, and Basil O’Flaherty Review.
