Spring’s here…at least the calendar says it is. I’ve lived long enough to know that spring isn’t guaranteed until May. We’ve had snow on Mothers’ Day in the past, it’s not uncommon really.
For this week’s National Poetry Month edition of Story Time Friday, I pulled two old poems out of my notebooks, fixed them up, and posted them below. I feel that these two fit the theme of complaining I’ve been seeing online the last few weeks. It’s the complaint that it’s still snowing, and it’s not sunny and summery. Well here’s something to consider: Spring is full of rain. That means mud. Snow…not as much mud. Embrace winter 😉
Hope you enjoy these reworked oldies. I’m not totally sold on the second poem, but it’s an improvement from the original version. If you want to see each poem in it’s original form, click the titles below. You’ll be directed to an original posting from years ago.
For those who wish to be part of Story Time Friday in the near future, you can send submissions to the email address that I formerly used for review requests (but don’t anymore since I’m retired . . . don’t try to be clever and slip on in 😛 ): firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to use the subject “Story Time Friday Submission” and send your piece as an attachment (.doc/.docx would be best). Any other questions, feel free to comment here or contact me through the blog’s contact form.
Hope to hear from some writers soon!
