Time to Be Happy

The dead of winter is dreary

A time to be sad and weary

But spring is soon to arrive

When the earth comes alive

And I’ll be happy and cheery.


I don’t like winter! I’ve often said I wish I could be like a bear and hibernate until spring. Now that the equinox is less than a week away, I’m doing a happy dance.

The limerick challenge sounded like a lot of fun, and after a couple of friends encouraged me, I decided to give it a try. I'm not a poet and this is my first attempt at writing limericks. I wrote four, two of which are reflective while the other two are a bit humorous.

    Makes you want spring to stay around a little longer. That blooming tree is simply beautiful.
