April Fairies

by Camilla Jean Welsch

The unexpected snowflakes were actually fairies
among lilac and hawthorn blossoms,
glistening in the sun,
and they clung, embracing one another in spring celebration,
occasionally drifting apart
and falling on napes of necks of passersby,
or melting lightly into large puddles
that welcomed furred feet of varying size,
and caused humans to hop aside, afraid of saturation,
which was the very reason the fairies had come:
to baptize souls in the nature of the new world sprung
with an ethereal accentuation of fresh chartreuse buds,
by means of clear-water intoxication,
and sun.
