May I?

The first spider
of spring
positions itself
halfway up the door
leg raised
ready to knock.

     She swings forward.
     To keep
     the swing set grounded, I

swing back

     I stop and start, swinging oddly
     to keep us balanced

                    I jump off, stand in front,

see her smile. Everything stays put.
