"Spring has come despite what I have heard / For every busy bee / For each fast-moving mouse / For every nesting bird / And better late than never for me"


The Weatherman Was Very Much Mistaken

 

Not a cloud in the sky

Warm and sunny and dry

Where I was expecting the flood

Which had been predicted

And felt so restricted

The chill had invaded my blood

 

Here inside hunkered down

Afraid to go to town

Expecting to be swept away

By Noah's Flood sometime today

Imagining the worst of everything

But now the clouds have gone

I peek out and get on

With life as it begins to look like spring

 

The weatherman was very much mistaken

 

And I am embarrassed I was taken

In as I waited for rain to begin

Whichever way the wind should blow

If on the wings of wind should ride a storm

I should just look out my window

And see that clouds before conclusions form

Sometimes weathermen are the last to know

Now to convince myself that I am warm

 

I turn off the TV

It is only winter in my house

And grasp reality

Spring has come despite what I have heard

For every busy bee

For each fast-moving mouse

For every nesting bird

And better late than never for me

Well here it is been warm for a few days but it is expected to get cold again. But some of the flowers are begining to poke out of the soil.
