Name that Theme?

The answer escapes or eludes or hides inside the guts of the poems.
Like a serialized story only by watching and listening and paying
attention can the answer be found.

Please! Won't you help us find it?

Now is the time when limbs unfold,
When all our trademark trees explode,
And crowds return in droves to gawk,
To choke both city street and walk,
So thick with tourists you can't get by 'em.
So let's, with poetry, enjoy this time,
Not all about flowers, not all about Spring.
A few poems will be (thankfully) on other things.
