Winter last so long
Where I live
It seems Spring’s so far away
I wish Winter would go a way.
Today is cold and dreary
Snow is sprinkling down
The grass that was green
Now white is lying on the ground.
Birds are on their way
To find their homes once had
Hibernating animals are
Are poking their heads and I’m glad.
One more month til legal Spring
And I am counting down
Please go a way dear winter
Let me get out and walk around.
