Despite the fact that spring is here -
The equinox came yesterday -
Winter stayed on, and it was clear
A heavy snow was on the way.
It started snowing after dawn,
And showed no signs of losing steam;
Before the day had come and gone,
The spring still seemed a distant dream.
We tell ourselves we know the score;
We like to brag about our role.
We claim we handle what's in store,
But nature's really in control.
