YEA! SNOW! AGAIN!
I think I can say I speak for the Robins when I say, "Whhaaaaat?!"
waiting . . . waiting . . waiting. . . (cuter, clicked)
Whose woods these are? The wonderful Toledo Metroparks.
White, white, white . . ..
All winter, frozen water has held nature fast.
Even the air is locked in ice . . .
Praying Mantis egg case
Everything is waiting . . for the warmth that will cause the little stirrings of the heart.
Well? If you can't lick it . .ummm . . . 'en-join' it?
After all, it can't last.
As Robert Frost said in his poem "Onset":
Yet all the precedent is on my side;
I know that winter death has never tried
The earth, but it has failed . . .
