Delicate ashen flakes dancing merrily to the earth
Gathering upon vivid green tulip shoots
Poking up tentatively through the moist, cool soil!
Beautiful feathered friends gathered at the feeders
Chirping noisily…grumbling about the weather
No doubt!
Spirit sagging, I gaze through the closed window
Wondering at the capricious nature of spring!
 A dollop of warm sunshine here,
A tepid breeze there,
All of it a wicked taunt, a promise of what’s to come
No doubt!
Forecast doesn’t look good, at least for today,
A cold northwesterly wind bending budded trees;
The lawn an all too familiar blanket of white;
And inside, looking out, I know it will get better soon
No doubt!

But it can’t happen fast enough for me!
Thanks for listening….

A beautiful poem Annabel, I can see the snow descending mini-cumulus clouds of them dancing on y9ur flowers before blanketing the earth. I am gazing out your window with you! Thank you for beauty, thank you for sunshine, thank God for you and your magnificent poetry. Peace!!!

Truly, it can never happen too fast until the heat of summer screams for shelter from the sun and its followers. Then we cannot wait for Winters arrival. So well penned, Annabel.

It's gotten much better around these parts - I've never seen this much Green so early in the Spring. And I'm sure it's heading your way.

Great. The sense of waiting for Spring is well rendered here. I amost felt like sitting down, peering out of my window with anticpiation too.

Spring comes slower to northern climes, but it still comes, no doubt.

This sounds like our typical UK weather! However at present it is glorious sunshine here...
I think snow surrounded by the signs of Spring is a beautiful sight...I'm sure it wont be long before the sunshine remains for you...
Lovely atmospheric poem...I felt shivery on reading it!...
Best wishes, Diana...

Winter is giving you a problem up there understanding it is spring, eh, Anna? Won't be long before warm weather find you.

Awww, poor lady. Got a tast of spring-like warm weather then, POOF, you're back into winter again. I know how you feel because last week we had three days of rain with temps way down into the low fifties. Don't lose heart, spring will come. Good poem, Anna, my friend.

Spring is here ! A day of blustery wind and 26 this morning.
Loving snow, not much here this year. Be well and keep up
the spirit you have given so freely of nurturing spring !
