The fair weather maiden briefly escaped the shackles of Winter this weekend to grace us with her fleeting presence. Our spirits soared along with the temperature.
As though wanting to assure us of her imminent homecoming
despite that rodent’s annual prediction of six more weeks of cold (when was the last time he brought us good news?), we delighted in her tease and the accompanying Vitamin D.
The earth too felt her alluring presence
and sprang forth greedily speculating that she would linger.
She departed almost as quickly as she arrived,
leaving us longing for the final thaw.
Hope springs eternal, and Spring’s brief flirtation leaves us hopeful for her speedy return.
Have you spotted any #signsofspring? Do share.
