of course i forgot the daylight savings
so when my friend's noisy car arrived
i was listening to Enright on cbc
and had yet to make coffee
he was coming to do some recreational
the moss covered limestone
is pushing through the
fleeting blanket of snow
there was no mid-winter melt
so there's no resistant crust
luckily we started with a coffee break
because from the kitchen table i caught sight of
some movement up the hill
a doe and a yearling were making their way
to drink from the melt-water springs

two damaged maples
felled, split and stacked without mishap
began the season with half a day
