Jealous Winter

~ can you tell I'm ready for SPRING???! hehe ~ Jealous Winter by Amy Swanson Winter... you come and go like a child playing peek-a-boo from behind Spring's shy curtain Winter... you are such a jealous child! So grudging of the warmth and life of your Spring sibling you race to steal the show each time your sister dares to show her pretty face and share her smiling warmth gracing us with her gentle presence -- your ego too large to take a back seat. Enough, Winter! You have had your day Your turn is no more... The curtain has closed on you yet you insist on coming back for unwanted encores. Oh Spring... please come to shower us with warmth and life and love... and send your jealous sister back to Mother!

I love your comparing Winter to a jealous sister wanting to steal the "show". It was 14 degrees here yesterday and right now it's almost 50...Winter needs to go to Momma's house and stay there!!! Much love, Steve
