DOWN WITH WINTER!

I've felt so long old frigid winter's breath,
I've come to look on him with great disdain.
I eagerly await his pending death
So I can see azaleas bloom again.
I yearn for tepid breeze and gentle rain;
I wish the snow would melt and roll away.
I crave the warming of a sunny day
When mockingbirds and robins gaily sing.
I want to watch the squirrels run and play.
I'm tired of cold -- I much prefer the spring!
