when seagulls sing hey ding-a-ding-a-ding

When it comes to spring's harbingers
I say stuff your primroses and your daffodowndilly.
And snowdrops I associate with chilly
Hanging-on-in-there-tenaciously-winter's fingers.
What I like to see, since you're kind enough to ask,
Is black-headed gulls in their new Lone Ranger masks.
