Nostalgia's Song

Updated on February 2, 2011

The sky is gray, both dull, yet bright
a depressing but inspiring sight...
The air is chill, and so alive...
all impatient that Spring arrive.
Clouds are heavy with rain and snow...
poised to let their teardrops flow.
Moisture drips so hazily
from leaves of winter, lazily...
Birds and squirrels forage near...
as they await Spring's grand premier.
Nostalgia sings soft serenade
accompanying the cold parade...
My wistful heart responds in tune...
like tides pulled by magnetic moon.
I pause, in thanks, for skies of gray
both dull and bright, in nostalgic sway...
This too shall pass, as seasons do...
and spring will bring her life anew...
Then winter's grasp will fade until...
it follows, yet, next autumn's thrill.

      Hi Ruby! I am with you here! I think God knew exactly how long we could tolerate any season, and fashioned them accordingly...spring will be a most welcome sight!

      my dear epigramman, i am always thrilled when you visit, and inspired by your words...teachers are students that share what they have been taught, and Ive been taught much by you...imagination and intrigue, twists and turns...unpredictability and surprise! I see you as a mentor... such and much a part of my growth and process, one for which I am most grateful!

      ....well you are my 'springtime' during this harsh reality known as Canadian winter - you are my summer flowers - and my fall colors - you always warm my heart and give me hope and faith and teach me how to write really good poetry .....
