One of my favourite pieces of nonsense poetry for this time of year…. Have a smile, do!
The birds are back with songs of Spring
Their tunes incite imagining
That Winter’s end will soon arrive
And living things shall haste to thrive

A Winter’s Tail, how bittersweet!
Today it’s sun, tomorrow sleet
And wind to stop us in our tracks
And cold to freeze Spring-hungry backs
One day we feel a wave of hope
Warmed by our thoughts that we can cope
And then come gales of Winter still
And blizzards coat the windowsill
Ho, Winter! Do your level best
Your time is near to take a rest
For Lady Spring prepares to rule
She’ll thaw your ice and warm your cool
She’ll rout you, kick your icy tail
She’ll make you wish you’d stopped at hail
Who’s mighty now, oh Freezer Guy
Who rules the roost? Oh my, oh my!
Spring wakes the earth; the gardens flower

Another fun whimsical poem Cynthia. You’re a poet who doesn’t know it. :). Happy Spring!
I definitely don’t know it, Brad.(smile)
I’m a fan of your poetry. 🙂
I’m a po-wet! Hooray!
That’s just what we’re going through here right now. Spring can’t get here soon enough!
There comes a time when a person just gets tired of winter….
Yes, and it’s here now for me!
Thank you, Joanne!
I love this poem! Hurry-up Spring weather!
My thought exactly, Clare.
Wonderful poem! I’m so ready for spring…and my hummingbirds.
Me too, Jill.
Lovely poem, Cynthia, highly appropriate in the week of the spring equinox.
Thanks, Kate. Happy Spring!
Thank’s for your words in your post !!! It’s enjoying (le printemps nous amène toujours l’espoir de la vie qui renait ) Belle journée
And thanks to you too, Christiane. Avec l’espoir!
This sent me on a quest to find a poem I can barely remember about the deceptiveness of spring sunshine and the cutting wind hiding in its shadows. i failed to find the poem, but i had a lovely browse along the way. Thanks.
You must post it on your blog or mine if you find it, Hilary.
Felicity Sidnell-Reid also had a Spring poem on Chris the StoryReading Ape’s blog this week that inspired me to reblog mine.
What fun to read this aloud!
Hi Betty: I’m so glad you enjoyed it.
Great fun Cynthia, this captures all the whimsy of early spring with its changeable nature.
Thanks, Andrea. The buds on the lilac tree are fattening up nicely as I write, but the wind yesterday was fierce….
It’s a beautiful fun poem, Cynthia. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Thank you, Kev!
Winter is one season I never minded saying goodbye to when we loved in New Hampshire. Here in Florida, that is another thing…delightful as is spring. Happy spring to you.
Thank you, Karen, and Happy Spring to you too.
Great poem! It is time the winter leaves. Well, it looks very promising now, and I hope we can start some garden work soon.
Me too, Inese! Thank you.
I like this! Just beautiful, Cynthia. 🙂
Thank you, Susan. Happy Spring!
Happy Spring, Cynthia! 🙂
Oh, my, dear Cynthia, I can relate to your splendid poem more than ever this year. By the way, I see your garden looks lovely in the winter too. Bring on spring. 🙂
Blessings ~ Wendy
Thank you, dear Wendy. BTW, I tried responding to your latest post yesterday and something weird happened.Likely my fault. Will try again later.
I’ve noticed my new blog sometimes behaves badly. That’s why I’m keeping my old one going too. Hugs as you grieve, dear friend.
Thanks for the smile. I was watching the birds on my feeder as I read your poem this morning.
Thank you, Jean, for your kind response. I’m afraid the poem I just posted isn’t quite as cheerful. Forgive me, please.
No forgiveness necessary. Anyone who can write poetry has my utmost admiration.
Good to see this poem again, amid our all our grey weather! And that cardinal photo is so beautiful. I miss them. They do not come this far west.
I just saw one through my kitchen window. That red-scarlett is a sight on a grey Springter morning.
