Early Spring



Ninety days till springtime No more silly hats and mitts Can't wait till robin red breast Sings its happy springtime hit It's by far the sweetest season When that feeling is attained You wake up each day singing That happy spring refrain Could there be a greater feeling Away with that big red nose You feel the warmth all over Right down to your very toes It's how one gets through winter The promise of days ahead Thrilled with the sight of crocuses No winter storms to dread You may say I'm a wee bit early With my ode to springtime fun But ninety days goes by quickly Can almost feel that April sun So hang on just a wee bit longer It'll be here before you know it Probably think I'm a daft old man Or just a silly old poet! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Yes, we sure live with that thought -that it will be over soon. My favorite season is summer. I can live in a tropical place any time. Love that sun and everything goes with it. Enjoyed, Jack!

    You are certainly not a silly old poet, you are really a brilliant man my friend! You can come up with these poems with the best of them (poets)! Wow, and this one is a tremendous write Jack, a dynamic poem of wanting Spring to come...I'm one of the few that likes the colder weather (not the snow), and don't like the Spring...it brings the Heat of the Summer! My favorite time of the year is Autumn! The start of the cold air! I'm not a fan of sub zero weather, just cooler air! Masterful Work!!

    Whereabouts do you live? We're having not too bad a winter so far, but this is Canada and it's only a matter of time! 77 years suffering through these deadly winters is more than enough... I think I deserve a medal!

    I share that dream Jack, can't wait for spring, the snowdrops have just put their heads up but are now covered in thick snow xx
