How Alarming!

How Alarming! 

At half past December
she yawned with a sigh,
and said, “Wake me in June –
maybe early July”

(and then,
she headed on off to bed
still dreaming of dozing)
But, somehow,

awakenened (mistakenly?)
much too soon
(in the waning days
of the old worm moon)

not destined, alas,
 as summertime’s jewel,
but beckoned (I reckon)
to be April’s fool.
