Tomorrow marks the start of spring.
The weatherman said it would bring
Some rain and wind and maybe snow –
That’s not the way that it should go!
It’s time to ditch the winter coats,
For hearing “spring” to us denotes
Not boots and scarves and barren trees
But budding blooms and gentle breeze.
At least, to most, the longer days
Provide more time to soak up rays
And thus prepare for springtime sun
When Nature’s little prank is done.
