She tells him with glee

that the robins have arrived

right on time

and the first honeybees

are busy in the heather.


He pretends to listen

but she knows he doesn’t hear –

he’s busy paying bills

also right on time


so as usual

she just notes the new arrivals

on her calendar

and mentions them

in the rough draft

of a poem.
