Francis Daulerio

Spring Hymn

And when the world came back
to life
I had to remind myself
that it was not
the same.

The blooms were
different;
some new,
some had split
and branched off
toward opposite sides of Heaven.

Some had not returned at all,
and I noticed their absence.

Francis Daulerio is an English teacher. His work has appeared in A Clean, Well-Lighted Place, Crack the Spine, Escarp, The Shot Glass Journal, and Whiskey Island.
