Spring Signs Ninette

Bring me Spring. Show me signs Winter has lost February’s frost. Let days lengthen and strengthen. Bring me Spring! Cold get’s old! Winter’s great for a while but I wait with a smile for Spring to ring in. So I scold the cold. Faint Spring paint -- First sign of yellow on a goldfinch so mellow, still garbed today in Winter’s gray faint paint. Hark, a lark in the park sings so sweetly. Chickadees chatter: “Hey you, what’s the matter, Spring sparks the park.” February 25, 2020 Springtime Ninette Poetry Contest sponsored by M. L. Kiser

Thanks Andrea. I love to use rhyme even when not "required" if it adds value. It does increase the degree of difficulty, especially in a form like this one.
