Spring Limericks

They say it is Spring, this I know.
Yet when I awoke there was snow.
I can’t take much more,
But need things at the store,
So off to shovel I go.

spring exercise

With shovelling now I have dealt,
The exercise making me svelte.
I’d rather be mowing,
Or in a boat rowing.
I still hope for significant melt.


LED lights are making their way across the Ocean, to Brattleboro

We just bought many a small light
so that we can put winter to flight
We launch fake UFOs
to mark winter's close
and create a spectacular sight.


Here comes the Sun ?

Winter has spring in check
and won't let go of her neck
It's not really clear
if spring's winning this year.
I can't watch anymore, I'm a wreck.



Here comes the "Bomb" See article for an explanation. And, get some sand. And write some limericks, maybe by candlelight.




The significant melting we did get,
and now things are mostly just wet.
With that out of the way,
by the end of the day,
Spring appeared before the sun set.


Ran away

I left Vermont after noon
which apparently was a tad too soon
I will be glad to return
and gladder to learn
that winter really won't last till June.


Good God....is there no end

Good God....is there no end to this miserable winter?????
There aren't enough limericks in the world to make this okay.
