White snow- cold,
Yellow with white rays- warm.

Green growth- hopeful, fresh.
Soft damp ground- messy.

Harsh bristles of weeds-

Brown, gray weathered post-
Stalwart, guarded, brave.

“Y” presented with few choices.
Get back in car and drive or
Walk along the road.

Fields as far as vision may allow.
Country land in the mid-west.
Starkness, endurance.

Generations echo the
descriptions of nature.

Passing on traditions
of determination,
and hope.

Cool upon
Warm reception
once familiarity sets in.

The vernal equinox,
Spring begins,
The crossroads
or paths may
still show
Snow or

    • Yeah, I am so happy but careful with my expectations. Though long ago, will never forget blizzard of March, 1978 with over 8 feet of snow andBGSU campus being crazy! : D

    • Veronica, your description is superlative. I appreciate how you have creative comments!
      I enjoyed trying to find a photo which expressed the dichotomy of potential snow tonight and green fields beyond. Smiles, Robin

    • Thank you, Dan. I like Spring but it is my 3rd favorite season. I just feel there is too much potential of dreaded snow! πŸ™‚ My favorite season is Summer, then Fall, then Spring. Winter is dead last. Smiles, Robin

    • Well, we are expecting snow tonight! So yes, “3 more frost’s after the forsythia blooms” is what the Old Farmer’s Almanac says. You are right, the temptation is to share flower πŸ™‚ pictures but they are part of the season and so is snow, Anneli! xo

  1. Spring remains my favourite season robin, but Autumn runs a close second. Days are noticeably shorter here, though the warmth remains and the colour is just turning in the trees and vines – The equinox already! My, how quickly the time goes by!

    • Pauline, I love Summer best, Autumn second and Spring third and Winter is dead last! πŸ™‚ I am glad our days are growing longer. We are on opposite sides of the world. I am not sure when your vernal equinox occurs? Thanks for your warm comment, dear. xo

  2. Robin I love this poem and I can see and feel the spring arriving at your place as we sit here this very morning in a thick fog. It won’t be long and the fire will be my first chore of the day. Enjoy the budding spring and warmer weather too.
