Spring Will Be

This year, sleeping spring refuses to rise
too long overdue but not a surprise
as the weak sun hidden in thick cloud lies
masked by stubborn mists in leaden grey skies
with temperatures way below normal highs

Lack of sunshine and warmth can jeopardize
crop growing and a good harvest denies
Persistent rain leads to insect demise 
essential bees drowned and no butterflies
to help fruit and flowers to fertilize

It’s difficult to overemphasize
the full impact a delayed spring implies
or the effects on mood trivialize
Lack of sun makes depression demoralize
many folks and others traumatize

Often, the thing to do is recognize
defeat and climb aboard a plane that flies
off to a land that sees the sun arise
and soak up UV rays (perhaps unwise
transformed to a mummy when parched skin dries)
