Vernal Equinox, Spring Begins

Spring begins as a spring, the roads shining wet, the earth desultory floats the water as 

the lawns are pricking green welcoming the Spring. At dawn the birds chatter with delight 

at the worms' awful plight while commuters mutter imprecations to one and all as if 

weather lore will do for us all, until they remember the Easter holiday that still seems so 

far off as the weather seems to be spoiling our lot.  


Snow shovels the warm dry sunny weather we had for over a week far away as it reminds 

us of its power to be bloody awkward of its own accord. 


In Spring we all fancy a smile that is not wry and weather to warm our bodies and souls 

after a grotty winter. Let us Hope!

    Hi Peter, I like the descriptive image in your poem... The reflection of Spring has been among us for a few days.. I'm glad that the coldness and darkness will not out last our up coming sunny days. I like the warm dry sunny weather in this northerly motion, as Spring picks up the pace ... awesome… :-) Linda
