Eloquent & sturdy kids are signs of hope.
A renewed energy for the moral & physical health of our country.
We need signs, just like the 1st Peoples who breathed a sigh of relief
when they heard Wood Frogs quack-quacking,
watched Mourning Cloaks flutter out from under the loose bark of the Hickory,
spied the bright red & yellow epaulets of returning Redwing Blackbirds:
signals that a tough winter was over.
