Winter Begone

 ~~~~  Winter Begone !! ~~~~

Oh, look, the wind is blowing
and once again it's snowing,
I haven't felt warm since November
and clear skies, I don't even remember.
Enough is enough, go away !!
Winter, you've had your say
but I'm sick of you now,
take a final bow
and get out of my life right away.

I long for the warmth of Spring
and the beauty that season brings.
Flowers and birds, clear skies above,
my favourite season, the one that I love.
p.ussywillows, crocuses and more
will gather outside of my door.
Winter, please begone !!
You've been here way too long
and I detest you to my very core.

    Hey Francine, you get spring a lot sooner than we do; we wait till May sometimes and being tired of it just isn't strong enough. Enjoy your daffiodils in March and I will be jealous! :)

    You poem is a fine example for your contest. Though l live in the tropics, it doesn't stop us from getting the colds that go along with winter. My granddaughter caught her first cold and my husband and l watch her while her parents work. We all got it, and the intestional flu too. I've been sick since second week of Dec. So writting a poem for your contest should come easy. Hope your weather warms up soon.

    I agree with you whole-heartedly....winter can go away and bring on the sun!!! Ps....thanks so much for the honor to write for your acrostic contest, Francine. I just now found my placement, and was so thrilled. (I was away for a couple of days, and sorry to be late in my thank you.....but you made my day!! ) Hope to find the words to enter your next challenge...."baby it's cold outside"!!! :)

    I enjoyed that story-so smooth and lively. It sounds like a contest with plenty of thoughts on our tongues to pore out.
