still spring

Still spring, still bright -- where they went around and laid down earth and grass seed, the places where the grass had been scrapped up during the winter, the blades are springing up, thin, thin, thin, like spiderwebs, but green.

And a plump little bird -- black or dark gray, I couldn't tell you -- perched on a root under trees, with its wings furled and its head drawn back and its tail low, so it look like nothing more than a ball of feathers with bright black eyes and a little beak.

And a little sparrow, with their patterns in brown, finding a dandelion that had started to open again with its seeds.  Peck, peck, peck!  Bits of white floating about as it tore into that nicely packaged meal.
