the thaw

The bright sun shines
  on the lawn, newly thawed.
By this beautiful day
  I am humbled and awed.

Spring is still several
  weeks from today.
The bite in the air says
 Winter's not gone away.

Birds are flittering
  through trees of green
and if this is Winter
  it's the loveliest I've seen.

The cold and I 
  do not get along
but I can forgive it
  when I hear the bird's song.

A beautiful day
  all shiny and new
on grass newly thawed,
now covered with dew.

    Enjoy the warm weather whenever you can up there in British Columbia. The state of Washington just south of you is just as cold as your province.

    Hey Francine..winter does give us an excuse to rest & with all the bugs going around it's a good idea to stay IN. Thanks so much for stopping by my writes. Light & Love

    Lovely poem, Francine. Don't you have the custom of Groundhog Day coming up soon - to indicate when spring can be expected? Thank you for visiting my page. Love, Su

    francine tell me where you are again? Is spring truly only several weeks away for you? I think for us, it's at least two more whole months. I really enjoyed this one!

    Can especially relate to verse four. Sound like you wrote it for us old people.
