I think spring did not come this year
Or if did, It was so brief
One morning when the sky was clear
And a single bush came into leaf.
Easter came and went in snow
As and for April, it was bleak
I felt the raging winds still blow
And wet streets caused my shoes to leak!
Now summer fashions fill displays
Too soon for sleeveless tops I find
But some wear shorts, I am amazed
Such optimism is ill-timed.
I’ve been here forty years all told
And never has it been this chill
We’re now in May and it is cold
Will June be warm? I hope it will!
