The whisper of Spring



I awake to a hush
the cold not yet gone
on this frosty morn
with remnants of snow about                   

A few minutes more
close my eyes again
and dream of warm days
with sun on the window pane                  

The whisper of spring
larks call from above
the coo of the dove
new blossom to warm my heart                

Although that is good
There’s still digging to do
and manure to spread
and that old mower to check                     

You stir by my side
and cuddle me close
and arouse my desire
to stay in bed for a bit

  14. Spring is a whisper away, but cannot be heard, for winter is still lingering, as it should, until later this month, and then, if it still is here, I shall scream at it, to disappear!!

  15. So lovely and warm.......I wanted to lie in a bit this morning, but I had a bossy golden retriever leaping at the side of my bed, wanting to go Out. Sigh.

  16. That feeling of staying in bed instead of going out. Anticipating spring is always a good thing Robin
