What are some literary devices and the theme of this poem "SPRING" by Shelley Leedahl?

SPRING
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.
