Hunting for Spring

We’re so tired, of winter’s, snow and ice,
For too long, we have been, within our house, winter’s price.
Why won’t you come, to visit us, and sing?
Where we’ll be touched, by your sun, so heartily, beaming.
Oh where! Oh where! Are you, our sweet Spring?
We need you, so very longingly!

We saw you peak out, for just one day.
Then you quickly, and suddenly, ran so very far away.
So we did a Rain Dance, and danced in the cold.
Without your shinning brightness, all we got, was cold snow!
Oh where! Oh where! Did you go, our sweet Spring?
Why did you run, so very far, with your blessing!

We sought the Groundhog, that he ask you, to come back.
But he was burrowed, deep beneath, all the snow, and ice pack.
He wouldn’t open his door, as we knocked, true and hard.
He refused, to even come out, as he denied the pleas, of this bard!
Oh where! Oh where! Are you, our precious, sweet Spring?
We beseech thee, to please come back, to me!

The trees want to bloom; their sprouts are ready, to collect.
Our hearts are there beside them, under this winter, and it’s effects.
We’ll sit here, dreaming of the beauty, only you can affect.
We’re hopeful, can’t wait, but now at March’s mercy, and redirect.
Oh where! Oh where! Did you go, our sweet Spring?
Our hearts and souls want to be warmed by thee!

What? Dragon and I see you! We rejoice my friend!
Our hearts, like the trees, are beginning, to warm again.
The snow is leaving; all is greening, before our eyes.
We beg you, to please stay here, solidly, close by our side.
Oh where! Oh where! Did you go, our sweet Spring?
At last! It doesn’t matter! We have you back, and all that you bring!

Written for my good Friend Jack Ellison.

    This made me smile, my thoughts exactly after the Winter of two, ought, fourteen...ought being the operative word...so little accomplished. I just sat in the house and moped. Congratulations on your win.

    Wonderful write Carol. It seems strange that we in Western Australia are still sweltering from the heat, while you guys are getting so much cold weather, but I don't envy you one tiny bit. I enjoyed this gem of a poem, my friend.....Peter

    Absolutely LOVE the repeating line 5 in each verse...Your dragon must have done a great job warming things up and did your trolls go into hibernation for winter? Congrats my friend - Tim

    Thank you Ruben... and for telling me how to get my blog picture up... Photobucket kept freezing up our computer so used picasa on Google plus. Without you I never would have gotten my blog picture up... Hubby had to help me... I'm a computer disaster... every time I touch any thing.

    I am sitting across the road from a beautiful field of daffodils. Of course we have our rain but the sunny days are worth waiting for. A lovely poem. Love, Joyce

    Thank you dear Carol for praying to the weather gods on my behalf! We just got dumped on again... crap, no end! Piles of snow in some places are six or eight feet high where it's piled!!! YUK! Maybe your prayer will be heard! XOXOXOX

    Liked this, we all want spring and I just want the summer but at least the rain has eased off by me. Nice writing. Rob
