The First Day of Spring

The First Day of Spring 
And snowflakes in the air
The birds do not sing
They think it so unfair

Walking seemed so nice
My dog is at my side
We hit a patch of ice
And fell on our backsides

The trees are all a'budding
The tulips pushing up
The snow is still a'coming
Had nature had enough?

The First Day of Spring
And snowflakes in the air
The birds do not sing
They think it so unfair

    this is so cute. It reads like the lyrics to a fun little song!! That repeating stanza you could use with other verses too!!

    The first day of Spring was odd over in Idaho as well. It rained continuously, wind was loud, and yet almost the whole time it was sunny enough to make the droplets look like silver. Good writing... it was light like the subject of spring should be :)
