Yes, You Guessed It


It's Snowing In April

That incredible white puffy stuff

Tossed from the sky

Like a ceasar salad

High in the air

Falling straight down

As Quickly as it can

Soon covering every spot

That once was bare

Large flakes lifting each other up

Climbing on the railing

All over the deck

Racing across the green grass covered lawn

It started really early

Long before I got up

The time is a little before seven

We must have an inch or maybe two

Those poor Spring flowers

Run for cover

If you know what is good for you

Too cold

You will shrivel up and freeze

All those beautiful colors lost in a world of white

The temperature thirty-six degrees

The sky filled with grey

As if a little girl scribbled it on paper

So bland and bare

Our driveway randomly speckled

Like a big Easter Egg that was misplaced

A lonely pine

Begins to whine

Bring back Spring

Where I dangle and shine in the wind

Gypsy Rose Lee The Spring is in hiding. The weather dropped down and we had frost on our windshields. Light rain and rain again on Friday. We can't put away our heavy winter jackets just yet. I like the change in the weather as much as I dislike it cold again. I can enjoy one day and be frustrated about the next. Do you put suntan lotion on every day? Do you have the air conditioner on all the time? I love the windows open and the fresh breeze. Thank you so much for reading and caring. Have a wonderful night.

I had enough of those days back in Latvia. Quite often when Easter was in early April or even late April we could wake up to snow. I am now glad to see the sunshine outside. I hope spring returns soon.

Dora Weithers In one day it all disappeared. Now that is the kind of snow I do like here today and gone tomorrow. New England weather is always kind of unpredictable. I do love the change of seasons. At least with snow we have no bugs. Thank you so much for reading and enjoying. What is the weather like there? I hope it is wonderful. Have a sweet day.

"All those beautiful colors lost in a world of white." Interesting, but I don't long for it. Like your imagery of the big Easter Egg misplaced. Good work.
