In search of a worm ( Poem )

Source

The signs of Spring!

I saw my first robin today,

pecking at the still frozen soil,

in search of a worm.

The poor little bird might not get what

he yearns, until maybe the month of May!



For the signs of spring are still forbidden,

beneath the cloak of winters cold,

tiny flowers trying to poke out there stems

it is spring they are being told.

Yet the grey skies keep the sun nicely hidden.



So when will mother spring get here

and why is she taking her sweet time,

These flurries of snow need to go,

I’m tired of old man winter,

I want to hang out my spring wind-chime!

Thank you! As I sit here at my kitchen table, ( wishing it was the porch ) I have the backdoor cracked so I can hear the birds and they are singing even though later today we will get yet another snow storm. I guess if they can still sing a sweat tune in the wake of a storm I too should try to sing one myself! Thanks again for inspiring me!

Very nice, I really liked it. This morning, my boyfriend, my daughter and I stepped outside and we heard a wood-pecker and my boyfriend got excited. It sure is starting to feel like spring, yet that snow still just won't go away. April is approaching though! And April showers brings may flowers :)

I'm so not looking forward to the showers, but I know the beauty it creates, so once again I'm working on my patience!!! Thanks for stopping by!

This is a sweet poem. I love all seasons but spring is so special for some reason. The smells, the warmer weather and the beauty. Thanks for this awesome poem.

The robins are in full gear here, and lots of worms for them. The weather is wonderful, and I am so glad that winter is finally leaving.

HEheheh,,,,why is it most Floridians are also meteorologists? lol My dad now lives in Spring Hill, Fl. Ever since moving there from New England he feels the need to inform us when we are getting bad weather, specifically snow and never fail to tell us the temperature that they are experiencing! Thanks for the update and the read!

Delightful. Such a wonderful tribute to spring. I too am waiting for the final snows to melt away. Loved this.

P.S. change sweat time to sweet time.

Gypsy, thanks for the p.s., I guess I really am thinking of the warmer weather too much! LOL We had snow last night but the ground is too warm for it to last, thank God!

I like snow at Christmas time and in January it's ok, but when it starts to look dirty, I'm done with it!
