Donna Wood

The snow is leaving rapidly; the temperature is warm,
And I heard they are forecasting a coming thunderstorm.
Spring’s around the corner: it'll hit us with a thud.
The surest sign it's almost here is all the sloppy mud.

Geese fly year around, these days; it doesn't mean a thing.
I do love seeing robins, dear old harbingers of spring...
Quite soon the daffadils will sprout, and trees will be in bud.
I know it won't be long, because I'm now knee-deep in mud!

I cannot say I like this slop, but surely it's a sign
That spring's around the corner, and that winter's in decline!
Oh yes, it's bound to happen; there's a stirring in my blood.
I'll wear my boots to feed the horse, and thank the Lord for mud.

You have got to keep all these and publish your very own poetry book. YOu have a true God given talent, thanks for sharing it with us. :) Have a nice day!

I have already published my own book, called "Poems That Rhyme". I have sold enough to pay for my cost of publishing them, but I still have lots left if you are interested.

Can I order them from a book store, or do I need to buy them directly from you? I go to Barnes and Noble all the time.

Good poem. Here in the hills, we have three seasons, sort of. Dusty, muddy and frozen. It can go from one to the other in a matter of hours sometimes. Your right though, mud is coming.......

Our mud froze overnight, but it'll thaw again today; we're heading for the upper 50's.

From one who can't find a word to rhyme with dime, allow me to say, thanks ever so much for your poem.

Mud is mine enemy.

Although the brown stuff and the green stuff do tend to go hand in hand. Good poem Donna.
