Spring has sprung
in other places.
In posted pictures
of happy faces
turned to the sun.
Happily searching out
green shoots, blooming trees
gentle spring rain, light breeze.
Here we had spring fits and starts.
A few days, a glimpse that warmed our hearts.
Still let us know that sometime soon
we too would see the new spring bloom.
So we sit and watch and shiver
Begging mother nature to deliver.
