Cold Spring

It has been a cold spring here in Minnesota. We are at least two weeks behind where we were last year. When one gardens, and has seedlings ready to plant, and the weather does not cooperate, you count the days, and notice every green growth. The daffodils are just now breaking ground.

 

Come on, Spring! Bring forth the warm weather, the green leaves, the bountiful blooms! I am ready!

Oh, Woe - Spring Snow

 

A difficult thing

is snow in the Spring,

Especially after some warm days of sun.

It’s not very nice

to see snow and ice.

It looks like Spring’s lost, while Winter has won!

 

While nothing stops

the myriad tops

Of greening daffodils, pushing up strong,

To have to grow

while under cold snow

Must seem, to a daffodil, terribly wrong!

 

But we do not fear;

this happens each year.

The flowers will make it, the birds will still sing.

A few days of frost

does not mean all’s lost -

It won’t stop the rush of the oncoming Spring!
