In the home stretch

Mini Daffs

Week upon week
 Of four degrees
 Week upon week of
   Fourteen degrees
    Winds that howled
     As wolves-a-hunting

     But yesterday
      But today
        Fifty degrees
         Forty degress
            Sun and sky send snow on her way
              It's a short reprieve I know

                 But it's Spring, peeking around the corner
                   Just before she enters the year


  1. I return form the warmth tomorrow and I am wishing the cold away!

  2. Lovely, lovely! Daffodils smell like butter with lemon and sugar, like creaming them together for lemon butter cookies. Against the damp of decaying forest undergrowth, they'd be lemon butter on bitter orange and oak moss.

  3. Roberta!
    Welcome home :-)
    I'll be wishing right along with you....
    Can't wait to hear/read more about your trip.

    Welcome Nance!
    Daffies DO smell like that :-)
    I can't wait to see their happy little faces...
    Soon, soon (but not soon enough lol at least not here in the NEast).....
