A Bright, Sunny Day

When I was a girl, one of the first indications of spring 
were the arrangements of forsythia and pussy-willow 
my elementary school teachers brought into the class room. 
Now, so many years later it is the first memory 
I recall when I look outside my window 
to see the forsythia in bloom. 
It could still be cold, but the sight of the bright 
yellow bush is sunlight itself, 
captured in a small yellow flower.
