Tug-of-War

snowy flowersFebruary is almost finished and the weather is up then down then all around. One day we are bundled up for winter’s blast and then a day to two later we are outside in T-shirts and sandals.

Avi, studied climatology and meteorology when he was in college. He explained that mixed up weather is very typical as one season releases and the next one increases.

Recently, I’ve been reading poetry; poems from long ago that I truly enjoyed. Short list of some of the authors Sandburg, Cummings, Nash, Longfellow, Joyce, Frost, and Tennyson. As I was thinking about the weather and the seasons changing, all their wonderful words inspired me…I hope you like this rhyme.

Tug-of-War

Winter clings to each day,

For it does want to stay.

 

Spring is approaching,

It won’t stop encroaching.

 

Back and forth relentlessly,

Tugging and pulling contentiously.

 

One day it’s cold with snow,

You’re shoveling flakes from the patio.

 

Next it’s warm with a blustery blow,

Oh my gosh, there goes your chapeau!

 

Back and forth relentlessly,

Tugging and pulling contentiously.

 

The tug-of-war between seasons,

Will it ever come to completions?
