March Commences

As March’s month commences,

with a loud call from a cardinal

and lessening of winter winds,

one’s hopes jump quickly

into a new season – instead,

shocked by steady snow.

Spring seems far away

as winter’s weary trip continues.

No hurt comes from

weather’s constant vagrancies -

only a need for patience

and, in time, pleasant days

will again prevail.

    This is a lovely poem. Thanks so much Lainie. I sometimes write so-called nature poems,
    but they are not my best. I appreciate your reminder to be patient. As Margaret Fuller said,
    “I accept the universe,” –Best, Zara
