Spring hopes

 Weary souls await the coming of  spring
When life is renewed and temperatures rise
They long for warmer days and skies of blue

 A  blizzard had just come out of the blue
Dashing the hopes of many for an early spring
 Old man winter from his slumber did rise

 From this blanket of white  their hopes would rise
 And no longer would they have to  feel blue
Knowing that it wont be long before spring

Spring fever is on the rise as  gray skies turn blue

For Andrea's Tritina contest
