Poem #2 -- Out Like a Lion



OUT LIKE A LION

I thought it was
going to be
spring outside.
Things were beginning
to grow.
When I looked out the window
expecting the sun,
all I could see was
SNOW!

It snowed left to right
and covered the ground.
My lone daffodil hung its head.
I want shorts! Not more coat...
I want sun! Not more scarf...

I want to
say goodbye
to
SNOW!

  1. Wow! Love this "spring" poem. We are finishing our break- two days of snow and five days of wind, wind, wind and more wind. Yikes~

  2. Mary Lee,

    We had snow here yesterday! I was so ready to be inspired by seasonal weather to write some springtime verse. Maybe soon the sun and warm breezes will head this way. I can hope.

  3. Brrr. I would like a little more in-between time. We've gone from cold to thinking about turning on the AC. I hope Mother Nature dials it back just a it.

  4. What a great title and true funny poem. Your daffodil looks like a little lion trying to roar. I have confidence that he will soon. A.

  5. Thanks for the spring poem, Mary Lee. That little spot of yellow in the white snow provides its own sunniness.
