Winter Meets Spring

by krys123

Winter passed by one rainy day,
Spring also lingered on that way.
She tipped her hat and said hello,
and came here just to melt the snow.

Winter's glad he wasn't alone
and wondered why Ms. Spring had shown.
She was always very impressed
and told him he's one of her best.

Winter was flattered by her taste,
Spring said there's no time to waste.
I must melt all this snow away,
with all my warmth that's here to stay.

Winter was sad he had to go,
and packed up his ice with his snow.
Spring would lay down flowers galore,
with singing birds and so much more.

Winter told spring she should beware*,
he may come back this time of year*.
With a cold breeze one lasting tease,
but promised not to make a freeze.

Some snow was left by winter's fest,
but soon would melt with all the rest.
Now spring had so much work to do,
was glad to see winter was through.

Spring said goodbye and fare thee well,
and now I'll cast my springtime spell.
Where flowers grow with birds and bees,
and fields of poppies in a breeze.
