Once Again Spring



Promised myself, today would be a goodie On a scale of good to bad Some days are diamonds, some days are stone Yesterday wasn't as good as I've had So many things can turn it around That really seem unimportant Like cheery hellos from neighbours and friends Small things are just reinforcement For life to turn out the way you envisioned Is up to each one of us it seems To choose the right path and stay on the track The result will be sugar and cream That's not to say there won't be some times The choice won't be yours to make Those days are common and unavoidable Just remember a deep breath to take They're usually only momentary glitches In our everyday manner of things Just try to remember to keep a positive outlook Won't be long till it's once again spring © Jack Ellison 2014

    It was 60 degrees when the Swamp Thing came to visit yesterday! But, as I told Dragon, winters not over yet! But would Dragon believe me? NO! So he was out there bouncing around on the icy ground where the swamp had been... I think he wanted his friend back... But the swamp drained away by the time the snow was gone! But that was the best spring Thaw we've had in... well forever! Great memories! The penguins are out there frolicking again and making everyone laugh!... Life can't get any better!

    Ah, yes, Spring, don't we all wish it would be Spring again! We have a taste of it now, but it will so soon disappear as fast as it came! I really enjoyed reading this amazing poem this morning! What a fabulous piece, Great Work!!
