What are some literary devices and the theme of this poem "SPRING" by Shelley Leedahl?
by Shelley Leedahl
From my kitchen window
the season is orderly, predictable
Water floods in the black garden.
kids stomp in the luscious earth,
jump from the few icy islands
to where water swells
over rubber boot tops
I will let them play
chance pneumonia, long hours of laundry
to see their mud-splashed faces.
They dump pailfuls of water,
and watch the new puddles,
squeeze the dark soil
through their fingers
Who am I to tell them:
Come out of the garden,
and risk destroying everything
growing and glorious.
