Signs: following her recovery
Bad times have been sent packing
not by the husband
by a certain unseen someone
always close at hand.
With what excitement and joyous sounds
the migratory birds return
having unburdened themselves of a long flight
He pours the tea
they both make themselves comfortable
by the fire that says 'everything is okay now'
and in the morning they will step outside
and embrace a new day
along with all the coming new days they have been granted
and looking up
they see the swifts weaving good times of their own
across the sunlit sky.
