In search of a worm ( Poem )

Updated on March 26, 2013
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!

      Great perspective on how tired we ALL are of winter and how 'hungry' we are for the most beautiful of seasons - spring!

      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!

      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.

      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 :)

      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!
