The Cold Month of May

the leaves have been taking their time
no leaves in May is considered a capital crime
Winter on the calendar long gone but still here
hanging on to the roof tops a lone musketeer
half May and the cold nights still endure
winter must have taken a major detour
the squirrels mixed up should we eat or collect
the chipmunks trying to show a little respect
air-condition or furnace what will bring day
on these days of the middle of May
