It's been a long winter and I am very happy that spring has finally arrived.


He was unwelcomed as he walked right in.
I wore a smile that was very chagrin.
He said he could not stay very long
but I soon discovered that he was wrong.
The longer he stayed the worse my life went
but his presence I soon grew to resent.
My schedule was upset and all a mess.
I wanted him to leave I must confess.
Many times he went right up to the door
then he would remember just one thing more.
Each time he came back close to talk to me
I knew there was no place for me to flee.
A robin appeared just the other day
and the old man got up and went away.
Now I’m standing and starting to sing.
How happy I am that it is now spring.

yep, old man winter, came here to Michigan, looks like he's here to stay for awhile, he's let spring sneak in, only for a day or two, then he swept it away, I am ready for spring, the ice to break, my fishing pool getting a little rusty.

For those that never feel in south Sweden we haven't got winter for the first time! ! ! and Spring has been around since January with a few crazy crocuses basking in the weak sun.
