A Good Home

Our Lady Spring

Cynthia Reyes

My Lady Spring, I must confess

Your absence causes great distress

Why does it take so long for thee

To come back here and stay with me?

Mallard on Wing Mallard on Wing

The sun shines brightly on the land

But winter makes its own last stand

At least I thought it was the last

Till winter whispered “not so fast!”

The tips of future tulip flowers

Came out expecting springtime showers

Then came a blast of wicked cold

And tulip shrank back in its fold.

Our Lady Spring, we need you so

Oh Lady Spring, where did you go?

Come back, relieve our suffering

And I will make this offering

Spring Garden - Pink Bleeding Heart

No more complaints of rain and fog

No more complaints that we can’t jog

We’ll gladly tolerate the bugs

We’ll stand outside and give them hugs

Spring Garden - Hyacinths

Oh gosh, I just read what I wrote

I take it back, that buggy quote

  1. I really liked this poem, and the pictures. I understand those feelings, too. I think we are experiencing warmer temperatures here where I live in the Southern part of the United States.


  2. Chuckling and delighting in the fickleness of your buggy devotion… Was just musing yesterday: is this bawdy shade of green to be named Cheap Hooker Green or Regal Green? Such calling attention to herself our local earth is doing right now.

    1. You’re a witty bad girl, Aggie. I think Cheap Hooker Green has to win, hands down, don’t you?

      The fresh green is such a wonderful thing. No wonder the Italians call Spring ‘La Primavera’, or ‘first green’.

      1. Love getting such a compliment from queen of the bad ‘uns. haha, she’s still with us, and hope she visits you soon!
