    tough to start a poem "as if"
    because the poet is raising expectations right off the bat
    but a worthy challenge
    and here a success capturing the essence of spring–
    a release–an elevation "I'm royalty"
    I suspect the "as if" poem has to just come to you
    like those sudden blossoms.

    Lovely arrangement of lines. They get progressively longer.
    "as if
    I'm royalty"

    Why that thought, he reader wonders, and the third line provides the answer: "blossoms beneath my feet", as they would be scattered in the path of royalty.
