Awaiting Spring

The Woolly Mammoth finally groaned his last
As the North Pole’s shift encased him in ice
The first to succumb to an Arctic blast
And now we humans challenge winter’s price

Beneath the snowy pasture, stems break through
Crocuses, daffodils, tulips emerge
They’re certain that spring will arrive on queue
Warm weather awaits; we are on the verge

The coming months will dapple the landscape
Kisses of lavender, yellow and red
Will find you quite soon; there is no escape
Bid farewell to those frozen days you dread

Keep focused on the magic of springtime
When sweaters are shed and the blooms surround
The chirps of spring birds have begun to chime
The glory of nature will soon abound

    Thanks Carolyn for your kind words. Yes there is lot of chaos but a new ray of hope has recenly came up in India in the form of a newly formed AAP party. The People's AAP party has created a big challanage for all the old national parties to change their way of working and solving the problems of people. I remember one of your Poem in which you had raised a voice against the problems of US citizens in one of your great Poem. Love and best wishes always...Ravindra K Kapoor
