I yearn for the warming days of spring
The trees sprouting leaves of green
The tulips and daffodils give us hope
And brighten the long dreary scene.

Winter seems so endless
The short days seem so long
I want to see the sun shine bright
And hear the robins’ song

I long to feel the dark green grass
Beneath my warm bare feet
I want to look and see the flowers
Up and down the street

Where are you Spring
When will you come
To give us all the faintest hope
That winter is almost done

Sweet sunshine melt away the snow
Bring us the warm sweet air
That brings new life to all of us
Who linger in despair

Bring it now I beg of you
Come save us from the cold
Bring us all the warmth and joy
That winter came and stole

Spring is lost. I think Punxatawny Phil sat his big fat groundhog a$$ on Spring and squished it. And now it's never coming.

Can you tell I'm ready?

The weather here is so crazy. It gives you the taste of spring just to yank it away and say "nanny-nanny-boo-boo". I wish it would just STAY SPRING already!

How can you be so creative when everyone is in the pre-spring funk?
