The Real Spring


Spring needs assertiveness training.

She hints, and hems and haws,

but the thaws don’t come.

Snow piles high and

a world wonders-

will the real

    Pretty please….

  2. Gallivanta says:

    Great shape poem and I like the idea of assertiveness training for spring. Spring is a bit abused by the big bully of winter.

    For crying out loud, just give it a good punch and lets get going …

  4. Reblogged this on Teacher as Transformer and commented:
    I woke up at 5:00 and one of the first things I did was look out the window. We have a winter storm warning with up to 10 cm (3 inches) of snow expected today. Winter feels like it began in October of 2011 and not October 2012. It has been long. So, “Will Spring please stand up?”

    C’mon spring – We’re all waiting for you with open arms!

      Bring it on! We had a wicked storm in this area today – more snow, road closures, etc – one of the worst we’ve had in years. Happy first day of spring! 😦

  6. There were snow flurries here this morning, plus the temperature dropped below twenty last night. There is a ray of sunshine that just came out. Hope!

  7. Wonderful! I’m sure she’ll listen now!

    I love it! Thank you for sharing this hopeful poem with so many who are thinking similar things. You express their thoughts in a beautiful way.

    Well done. We’re all talking about the weather now.

    • melodylowes says:

      Oooh, boy – some of the stories and pictures coming from the ‘front’ are pretty incredible. Stay warm and safe!

      • lylekrahn says:

        Maybe you’ll have to post them.

        The 100-car pile-up in Edmonton is sure horrible. I was scheduled to come into Saskatoon this afternoon and didn’t attempt it – but I was itching to go see those reputed 6-7-foot drifts on the #5 highway, just to have photographic fodder! πŸ™‚

      • lylekrahn says:

        You should have gone – that sounds amazing. It’s a lot of fun checking out stuff when you don’t have to be there.

      • melodylowes says:

        Too true! And opportunities like that sure don’t come along every day. I’m home safe and sound listening to the wind – perhaps tomorrow will yield some interesting sights, once that wind has had its say?? πŸ™‚

    Oh you got me smiling! I think it’s been colder these last few days than it was most of winter. haha! Thanks, Melody!

  11. Caddo Veil says:

    Yep, I thought yesterday–first day of spring–that the snow flurries were the Last Straw; but I’ll no doubt come up with a short poem about it…

  12. It’s true.
    I’m sitting here…cold.
    Spring is trying to stand up
    Winter is sitting on Spring!

  13. Melody, there’s no need to rush, roots and holiness requires their time and, to me, God is very well in charge of their timing. We humans need to learn needful lessons in absorbing Winters voices within us.

  14. I hate when the Lord’s creation teases us so!

  15. lvsrao says:

    Pretty enough.

  16. Imelda says:

    I think it has come at last. πŸ™‚

  17. Virginia Duran says:

    I loved the image, the poem and the creative disposition!
