Tired of the Snow

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .

tired-of-the-snow

I’m so tired,

so very tired of the snow,

another day, that’s gray,

snowflakes dancing about,

a sight to delight,

when winter has just stepped in,

now more white stuff all around.


Looked out of the window,

snow beginning to cover the ground,

wondering about tomorrow,

when the door to spring,

will finally open wide,

want to see crocuses,

springing from the ground -

so tired, so very tired of the snow.


I wonder if white’s a color?

I’d love to see green

and flowers in rainbow hues,

but outside the top color is white,

snow, snow all around,

joining the white stuff on the ground -

so tired, so very tired of the snow.


Waiting for the Spring

I woke up this morning,

to a gray and ordinary day,

outside the ground still covered,

with a blanket of white,

I feel another cold coming on -

Where, oh where is the spring?


I went to bed

and dreamed of meadows,

flowers blooming,

the perfume of lilacs in the air

and the sun so warm upon my face.

My eyes still shut -

I listened for the chirps of birds singing –


Is it spring yet?


I jumped out of bed,

to the window I did head,

I looked out and all about,

it was another gray and ordinary day –


Where, oh where is the spring?

Yes, at least we are heading toward spring Shyron. Blessings to you.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on March 06, 2018:

Gypsy,

The groundhog saw his shadow

It must have been a frightful sight

The sun shinning on the falling snow

Then ducked back into his din

As the snow fall begins again

I do not like winter's cold and SNOW.

Blessings my friend.

Thank you GlenR and glad you enjoyed the song.

Glen Rix from UK on February 26, 2018:

I echo the sentiments expressed in your free verse poem. Winter has seemed endless here in the UK and just as we thought spring was on the horizon - it has started to snow! George Harrison was my favourite Beatle and this is one of my favourite songs, so thanks for the reminder.

Well, FlourishAnyway we steadily now have steadily -12 C or 10.4 F days and about the same nights and I have no idea when this will all stop.

FlourishAnyway from USA on February 24, 2018:

The weather is so chaotic here with temperatures fluctuating between the 30s and 70s. It’s hard to know what season it is. I look forward to mild spring days. So glad I don’t have to face snow for weeks on end.

Oh, yes, Manatita I am so waiting for the spring.

Thank you, Michael, I am constantly searching for signs of spring.

In the winter I just can't seem to get moving. The views of white look nice but green is such a pretty color. When Spring comes all the other colors come too. Thank you for giving Spring a boost along it's way. A wonderful poem that brings out so many beautiful thoughts.

This is always a touching, upbeat song. We really do better in Spring. What can I say? Bring it on!

Gypsy Rose Lee (author) from Daytona Beach, Florida on February 23, 2018:

Thank you, Linda. I am hoping that spring gets here soon we are in the deep freeze here in Latvia right now.

Linda Rogers from Minnesota on February 22, 2018:

Great poetry about the yearning for spring. I'm also tiring of the cold and snowy season in Minnesota. Can't wait for spring and all the good that comes with it, including enjoying my lake cottage.

Gypsy Rose Lee (author) from Daytona Beach, Florida on February 22, 2018:

Thank you, Robin.

That is certainly how it is Nell all that gray.

Thank you, Kristen.

Thank you, Nikki, blessings to you too.

Glad it won't take so long here Bill.

Thank you, Peg.

Thank you, Shyron blessings to you too.

Here comes the sun, indeed. We're having a bitter cold and days of solid rain here in Texas, after a day of reaching nearly eighty degrees. Soon it will be spring. Loved your wishful poem and its images of new green growth and your dream of meadows.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on February 22, 2018:

When I was in Alaska I remember wishing for the day the snow would stop. It stopped on May 15th. lol

Nikki Khan from London on February 22, 2018:

What an amazing poem on spring and tiredness of winter.

Hopefully winter would be over soon and since would be flashing warmly on meadowlands.

And there would be flowers and greenery everywhere.

Can’t wait for March to come and bring some fresh scented air for us.

A wonderful piece dear :)

God Bless You.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on February 21, 2018:

When you are so tired of the snow

And your cabin-fever starts to grow

Grab a good book

And let the fire-place glow

Let it snow, let it snow

Blessings my friend

Kristen Howe from Northeast Ohio on February 21, 2018:

Amen Rose. I feel the same way. Hopefully I won't see any more snow in the near and distant future, unless the weather flips again and drops to the 20s. Well-written and poignantly said with moving images.

Robin Carretti from Hightstown on February 21, 2018:

Thanks 4 getting back to me so quickly

Nell Rose from England on February 21, 2018:

Oh I know how you feel! LOL! not that we have snow, just a tiny bit back in November, but its so darn grey! driving me insane!

Robin Carretti from Hightstown on February 21, 2018:
