Spring Makes Effort To Spring Forth

Under the edge of an icy wind, like a wink or mild flirtation, I can feel spring trying to get my attention. The yard is a mess of patchy yellowed grass, crunchy grey snow lumps and brown mud patches, but something is afoot. The days dawn at a bone-chilling 10 degrees but by lunch we've got 40! A battle is raging between cold and warm, and I guess I'll have to put my money on spring, though it seems a long shot at best.
