poem-when? April 1, 2018

Oh winter!

Release your tenacious grip!

Quit dripping this mix

of snow and rain,

that piles up in my yard.

It’s making me insane!

It’s April now, and white

should be from blossoms,

not snow falls; this isn’t right!

Oh, winter, we’re through with you here;

go visit the Southern hemisphere!

    Lol! oh this is fun! the equinox has come and gone, easter put to bed, colored eggs hatched. daffodil blooms yellow in the snow (not where the huskies go)

    • lol No signs of blossoms here, I’m afraid! 😦
      Almost all the snow was gone, just a swathe of about 5 feet wide, 6″ high in the back yard, and then in snowed an inch yesterday! APRIL 1st! Some April Fools. It’s mostly melted today, just that same swathe left. We’re back to school tomorrow, and perhaps it will be gone by morning?!

  6. Having seen snow on Mother’s Day, here in central Arizona, I totally feel your pain.
