Spring
by

Treetops dusted white with snow,
Lawns and rooftops too, but
The grip of winter is loosening.
Days are growing longer,
And spring is just around the corner.
Flowering cherries are blooming and
Daffodils are ready to burst into color
In sheltered areas behind the barn
Reviving memories of past springs,
Of March winds, April showers,
Flowers budding, birds returning,
And we look forward to enjoying
Happy times under sunny skies
As spring again enriches our lives.

After graduating and a tour with the Coast Guard, Bob's work took him to Arizona and eventually to the Pacific Northwest, where he and his wife had a horse farm. After retiring, Bob joined a creative writing class and got serious about writing poetry. He has since published four collections, numerous chapbooks used as Christmas presents for family and friends, and has had poems published in a variety of journals.

I went outside today and I could smell spring in the air - a smell I surely needed and dearly missed his winter!

Snow is falling here today, and the deer are wandering around the house. March snows are beautiful.

Great way to begin a Sunday morning, Bob. How the seasons inform our lives and transport us from lethargy to springtime energies. Nice piece of work.
