On goldfinch turning yellow.....
I'm sorry I do not have a way to salute the coming of spring-- like the goldfinches sudden brilliant yellow patches that turn it into a canary yellow bird.
Instead spring urges me to plant and dig dirt --
I think turning into a different color would be easier in the long run.
I could pick a different color each spring!
Spring is high hopes".

I remember in the spring we used to wear bonnets, new dresses with big crinkly slips. Or, perhaps little suits and ties. Was it our goldfinch-ness perhaps, that same urge to show our colors, to look bright, maybe act like a tulip? Blooming.
