Out with the King - In with the Queen


                          Looking for signs of spring, but can not find
                               It is just white snow and frozen ice 
                      Cold feet, red cheeks, hat, gloves and wool socks
                           I wrap me in, to protect me from the cold
                     Dreaming of spring, sun that can warm my cheek
                       Dear King winter, it's time for the Queen spring

    The Kings cold heart / Is softened by the Queen. The hammer of his iron fist / Becomes a velveteen. His icey heart is melted / By the one who holds his love. And joy is spread across the land / On wings of warming dove. Good write Anne Lise. Thanks for making me think. Rockman :-)

    Successful succinct read Anne Lise. Will King winter and Queen spring have a child in for Norway a sizzling summer or an awsome autumn? By the way is it worth being a Premier Member? Best wishes from Peter. Peter Dorr 5/2/13

    I like this and how you address winter as the king. And spring as the Queen. I agree, its time for the Queens reign

    In St. Louis, Missouri we usually live in temperature swings. We easily swing 40 to 60 degrees in a day. The jet stream keeps moving North and South above us. If you don't like the weather... just wait a minute. It will change. Loved your poem.
