In not too long, we’ll see the spring,
for winter will have lost its cling!
Across this earth, we’ll waken to her sweet rebirth.
On the first day of spring, give praise and sing!
Rejuvenate; refresh; rejoice!
Welcome her with the gladdest noise –
In meadows we can meet to dance with merry feet!
Bring flutes, lutes, drums, and a resonate voice!
At spring’s debut, let’s all arise
with gratitude for her sweet prize:
of life, the renewal thereof, and love,
and promises of bluer skies!

(looks like first day of spring was just this past March 19!! Praying for sunnier days, in more ways than one!)

anxiety, blue, fire, heart, joy, rain, rainbow,
Boisterous hearts aflame
Blissful brightness gains
Listening as the rain
Drive us both insane
Politely pouting and praying
For sunnier DAYS
Passing the time inside
KNOWING their ravenous thirst
Will never be satisfied .
Caressing, loving embraces
Required hearts AFIRE never
Insatiable HEARTS can never lie
This undeniable LOVE takes more
Than just bringing down a
RAINBOW from the EMPTYING SKY
TO stop the TEAR DROPS of the
CRY and the promise of
TOMORROW TIMES TOMORROW
By each other's side

O! Sunnier than the sun is my love’s shine,
Her radiance gives birth to jocund mirth.
More lunatic in prowess fixed to pine,
Her aspect crazes more than pale moon’s dearth.
More martial in her count’nanced iron will,
Her courage braves the fields of warring doubts.
More swift, mercurial quick my thoughts are still,
Her face in them has ruling cardinal clout.
More jovial crowned, in manners utmost royal,
Her seat of influence has kingly stead.
More saturnine are those whose love’s most loyal,
Her absence grave as weighted bullet’s lead.
My love does bend the thieving gods’ weak knees,
Devoted strongly with venereal ease.

I finally saw a robin bird,
Singing loudly to be heard
Tippy, my rescued kitten,
Sits in the window listenin'
My lilacs are now in bloom
I love the smell of their perfume
The days are now sunnier,
And so much warmer
My sweet Grandbaby, Genevieve,
Is getting too big to believe
Come the first day of May,
She'll have her first birthday
I'm so glad that Spring is here,
I've been waiting for it to appear

funny, happiness, inspirational, life, nature, seasons, uplifting, winter, winter,
Winter's the season cold and white
Those who hate it favor flight
Warmer, sunnier places in mind
But sometime monies are hard to find.
Others who love the frost and snow
Have many activities on the go
A day of sports, and evening of pleasure
Uniting to form a memory treasure.
So here's to winter and all its faults
Fresh fallen snow, skiers exult
Cold and stormy a typical day
Moonlit' rides with the horse and sleigh.
And to all of us who have what it takes,
Say "farewell" to those who need breaks
A winter of warm, a winter of cold
All balances out or so we are told.

art, beauty, care, caregiving, friendship, love, meaningful,
Her soft warm hand holds up the umbrella,
Holds it above my mind,
Protects me from the wind and rain,
Protects me from the wild,
Thoughts and words uttered in silence,
Uttered from way up high,
Falling toward me like drops of ache,
Cascading from the sky,
And she gives a glimpse of sunnier days,
Her other hand cradles my chin,
She opens my eyes to a future world,
She shows me where to begin,
The journey for the next stage of my life,
Her hand shields me from the cold,
With her umbrella of beautiful love,
She warms my future, my heart, my soul.
