Please remember I wrote this about 9 years ago when I still enjoyed working in the yard. I no longer have flowerbeds, just pots and raised planters on my deck. Spring? I do not like this time of year! It confuses me I fear. I look outside and see the sun, And think the flowerbed! What fun! And so out to the shed I go, To get my shovel, rake and hoe, Some seeds I didn’t know I had, I hope they haven’t all turned bad. So with my tools, my happy grin, I turn and head outside again. But as outside I start to go I can’t believe it, I see snow! I put away the final tool, Head back inside, I’m such a fool. To think that spring had finally come. Back to the house and feeling glum. Pick up a book, a cup of tea, I look outside, what do I see? The sun is shining all around, Crocus are popping from the ground! I drop the book, forget the tea, And head outside, what fun for me. This time I’ll only take the hoe. I think you know, it starts to snow! I put the tools back in the shed, And back into the house I head. It will not fool me again, I won’t go out, I’m staying in! I fix more tea, a blanket, too. I settle back, kick of my shoes, I plan to sit and read my book, And then outside, I had to look! I see the sun is shining there, I close the blinds, I just don’t care! I’ll stay indoors until July, And then I’ll have another try! Hope this made you smile!
