Another cold day in Southern Virginia,
Is spring ever going to come?
Even the plants on the farm are shivering,
Where is the sun and warmth for them?
The computer runs slow
The mouse runs fast
I’d much rather crawl back in bed.
The weatherman says we are going to have rain,
And cold temperatures again,
I know there must be someplace warm
So I don’t have to wear so many layers.
Oh wait – I’m going away
On a vacation to sunny Georgia.
Do you think it will be warmer than here?
72 will actually feel balmy.
A walk outside, with children in tow
A walk on the beach feeling the warm sand
A visit to Savannah, where a neighbor now lives
A flight home – maybe spring will have come.
I can hope.
