out early . . .
I exchange greetings
with a violet

I left a slightly different version of this as a comment at Rita Odeh's blog.

Thanks, Adelaide, Juliet, and John.

Yes, Monika, a few here and there. We've been having a stretch of unseasonable weather. Of course, the entire winter has been unseasonable. Lovely translation.
