I like this poem because of how each line adds something new for the reader to chew on. L1 lays the timing of the poem- its the first day of spring. L2 tells the reader that snow is falling- which leads the reader to think that spring is delayed- sad but not an unlikely occurrence. L3 then adds more information- the snow is falling from bough to bough, perhaps because its actually a nice spring day and winter is receding as it actually should! Its that element of surprise in each line that is most appealing about this ku.
