Searching for Summer

Nasty old winter is getting me down
I'm looking for summer all over town

I lift up a blanket of snow off the ground
Sadly there is no green grass to be found

My very next stop I'll go down to the beach
With waves and sand summer may be in reach

The lake is solid like a piece of glass
No sign of summer I'm freezing my ass

Summer summer reveal yourself to me
Sun warm my face place leaves on a tree

Hey wait a minute is that a red Rose?
I pick it up, place it under my nose

I'm so sad to say, the rose isn't real
You can imagine how sad I now feel

My search is over I know when I'm licked
As I head home I'm feeling real ticked

I see a young woman walking my way
Wearing a bikini on this cold day

A glimpse of summer my heart starts to race
I'm confused, yet there's a smile on my face

    Oh Richard....how cute! ;) You should be in Beirut right now. I'm in short sleeves with the door of my living room flung open...the sunlight is steaming in. Spring is doing a jig...and later...I'm going power walking! Canada is really TOO cold! My brother did his Ph.D in Calgary and married a Canadian...Let's just say...she doesn't want to go back home, but loves it here! Come visit! ;)

    I am Jealous! Mind you I just got home from Mexico so I guess I can't really complain. Where I live is considered Desert, the hot spot of canada. Google Kelowna/ Okanagan it is really a four season playground here.
