Give Me Spring

Take away my static hair,
My thick, wool toque, my glassy eyes.
Take away the chilly air,
The endless clouds, the covered skies.

Give me back my sun-streaked hair,
My floppy hat, my shaded eyes. 
Give me back the sea-salt air,
The fluffy clouds, the crystal skies. 

Take away my dull, dry skin,
My soggy mitts, my booted feet.
Take away the frosty wind,
The icy paths, the slushy streets.

Give me back my sun-tanned skin,
My denim shorts, my flip-flop feet.
Give me back the toasty wind,
The sparkling dunes, the sandy streets.

Take away harsh Winter's sting, 
His gales of hail, his banks of snow.
Give me back my darling Spring,
Her rising sun, her lovely glow.

    Oh, and 'darling spring...rising sun, lovely glow'. I love that. To your question, I used to write a lot of short stories, but I haven't for a while. I have an idea for some prose though, if I ever get around to writing it down.

    Heather, what is the weather like where you are in the spring and summer. This poem makes me imagine you in your big mitts and boots, and a jacket pulled around your face so that only a little nose is poking out. Ha...cute picture.
