Why is it still so freezing cold outside?
In Texas, of all places, why so gray?
No hint of spring can make this chill subside--
Though Phil predicted spring without delay.
Exceptionally gloomy is the scene
Reminding me of northern winters past
Dark early, never warm, and not serene,
(Although hot tea helps; but it doesn't last.)
Yearn I for season's change, and all it brings,
Freedom from sweaters, bulky clothes, and coats,
Open windows, and a few like things:
Laughing kids outside (without sore throats).
Let some praise ice and snow and winter fun--
You keep them. I still miss the warm spring sun.
