Spring at Last--By David Austin--United States

Spring at Last

with snow
on the ground
what shall i wear
it’s fifty outside
not a cloud anywhere
the sky is two shades brighter
i feel just short of wonderful
and the forecast is “continued fair”
what shall i wear      why a big smile of course

  1. This is so well written. I live in AZ now, but remember well the first spring days in PA and OH. Very nice memory. Thank you.

  2. David, your poem rings out the answer to lots of problems - a smile to wear and a smile to see are two of the most precious sights to see! Sheri

  3. David I loved your Etheree Poem. Very well done and I loved what you decided to wear. That is the best. Thanks for sharing a great poem

  4. Wonderful poem David. When uncertain what to wear, a smile is always in fashion! Enjoyed your poem. Spring is officially here, but sometimes it's hard to tell! Best wishes, Chris~

  5. Love it! You send a gift for all of us to enjoy...Rhoda
