Transcript of Spring Storm

Spring Storm
By Jim Wayne Miller

He comes gusting out of the house,
the screen door a thunderclap behind him.

He moves like a black cloud
over the lawn and---stops.

A hand in his mind grabs
a purple crayon of anger
and messes the clean sky.

He sits on the steps, his eye drawing
a mustache on the face in the tree.

As his weather clears,
his rage dripping away,

wisecracks and wonderment
spring up like dandelions.
Jim Wayne Miller, a native of the mountain country of North Carolina, was graduated from Berea College in Kentucky in 1958 and received his Ph.D. in German and American Literature from Vanderbilt University in 1965.
