Every day that passes spring should be in the air,

Where is it you ask, this really isn’t fair.

The air is still frigid with snow in the sky,

It will be here shortly you say with a sigh.

Yet another day slips past and you still hope it comes soon,

But by the way that it looks it won’t be until June! 

It’s Way Past Time

The date has passed, the calendar says that it’s here,

Spring has sprung and you have nothing to fear.

But as I look at the ground still covered in white,

I think to myself, “well this can’t be right.”

So I feel the air and look to the sky,

Could they be wrong? Could they have lied?

I want to be out, out on the trail,

Where the grass is greener, even at the pace of a snail.

Step after step, I walk on the ground,

My footsteps advancing, the only fair sound.

But instead here I sit, and the trail grows old,

It will soon be warm, or so I’ve been told. 



Here We Go Again…

“Yes, I deserve a spring–I owe nobody nothing.” 

-Virginia Woolf

“Spring will come and so will happiness. Hold on. Life will get…warmer.”

-Anita Krizzan

As I was waiting to leave my daughters hockey tournament on Sunday I decided to check the weather. At 7:00 pm it said a 30% of snow for Wednesday. I wake up this morning and it is now been further updated from basically nothing to now 12-16 inches! As each day has passed, the amount has kept increasing.

Although I absolutely love the winter months, it is time for Old Man Winter to retreat back to wherever it is that he comes from and let Spring take the lead.

I mean really-this is the fourth nor’easter in the last three weeks and it is getting old! It is the first day of spring!!!!!


A New Year?

The end of the year is just two days away,

It’s soon to be history I’m happy to say.

A year full of ups and a year full of downs,

With many more smiles than awfully sad frowns.

At work or at home, the time has gone fast,

But with January upon us, it most certainly won’t last.

The time will slow to a horrible crawl

Waiting for spring and its inevitable call.

So wherever you stand with regards to the new year,

It’s going to happen, don’t have any fear!


The First of May

This was what a tree outside the middle school in our district had to offer this morning.
