Waiting for Spring
Pat Brisson


The trees are bare,
the skies are bleak;
spring's not due for
a few more weeks.
I'm patient though,
I'll do my bit --
I'll just sit here
and wait for it.

As much as I wish I could, I can't control the weather, so I'll pull up on this bench and wait as well!

I agree with Larry. The poem and photo go well together.

Can't help but like the photo and the beckoning bench in juxtaposition with the poem. I like the grainy texture of the picture. It's like two poems for the price of one.
