First Day of Spring

Today is spring and here’s the thing – 
It seems to play the part.
The weather’s slightly warmer
And it’s sunny – that’s a start.

Some buds have poked up from the soil
And birds have started singing.
I ditched my scarf and hat
But to my turtlenecks, I’m clinging.

For I am not the trusting sort
And spring’s a fickle season.
Tomorrow may be cold again – 
There is no rhyme or reason.

So though we all should welcome spring
And hope it’s here for good,
Before I pack my wools away,
I think I’ll knock on wood.

    Found this write to be a delight to read. Here in the South Spring is always a very fickle season. Yet always prefer its hope over that of cold, cold Winter.. A great write...

    We are the same Ilene, down is a third of the way into our Autumn, But it's still bloody hot. It was cold this morning and the rain teemed down, But now it is back to thirty three again. Nice read, my friend....Peter

    I'll do the same, Ilene. Spring is finally here, but it couldn't come soon enough for me. Good write as always.
