Spring Forward

Spring Forward


A helical "Slinky" type coil
Compresses or springs without toil,
It’s spiral at times,
Or stretched to the nines...
Like worms that are happy in soil!

Beneath or on top of the ground,
They stretch, but so often lie wound,
Their tunnels air earth
To make healthy dirt
And seedlings are glad they’re around!

Titillating Experience

Mom caught her boob in the washer’s wringer
Rotor made Mom an opera singer
    Tit for tat, she got redder
     Pop struggled with the lever
I pulled the plug, was able to spring ‘er

Wow!  Mum is the word on this awful day
We don’t refer to this deed of foul play
     “Hah! Your Dad’s a dud," she cried
     As with pain pills she was plied
Now under the radar Pop stays away

Spring

   A spring was made and then consigned
   In spiral form to serve mankind.
   There's tension in the shape,
   It's aching to escape
   From python hold and then unwind

Gardening time, everybody

Now that spring has arrived on the scene
to get out in the garden I'm keen
can't let one more day pass
without cutting the grass
since the light through my window is green!

There once was a girl named Bo
Her dad did not like her beau 
So one day they eloped
But Bo’s dad dashed their hope
He sprang from behind with bolo.

This winter I am so much over
I need to run out in the clover
Time for spring to forward
Maybe I'll just move shoreward
And spend my time as a fearful rover.

Her heart immune to the death knell
She breaks down and cries

Avoiding Amputation

I watched the sailfish spring from the sea

Had no wings, an enigma to me

     Why in flight did it embark?
     
     Pursuit by a great white shark

Its sail would soon be an amputee

Emmmmm Good

The spring in my pants was so dandy.
She wanted to suck it like candy.
When she closed her eyes.
I gave my surprise.
Never saw a girl quite that handy!

Spring Fling

Spring Fling


In the midst of the instinct to mate
she went sniffing around for a date
and once on the scent
all her energy spent
succumbed to spring’s arduous fate

Spring Time

The sun came to see us today
Does that mean spring is on it’s way
Flowers Blooming
And trees budding
Do we think it is here to stay?

Spring forward




If he could spring in more money,
and avoid acting apparently funny,
Will see springing young buds ahead of spring,
and essence of joys that life surely does bring,
Will relish the cushion springs with his sweet honey !

Spring (limerick)

Spring spring how nice of you to come
So happy all the cold and snow is done
  Let's enjoy the flowers the birds and the bees
  Fun things to watch like leaves grow back on trees
I love spring and I know I'm not the only one

Where Do Crickets Go

Where Do Crickets Go?

As winter approaches, their songs die out
Their gentle chirping I can’t live without
     Field mice make their way inside
     Lizards under my couch hide
So what’s with the crickets; have they no clout?

The crickets in Florida grow quite large
Perhaps in cold times they cruise on a barge
     Carnival Cruise Line reject
     Like Dangerfield, no respect
Not even an honorable discharge

Do they erect shelters ‘neath a snow mound?
Their disappearance surely does confound
     Like snowbirds, do they leap south
     Hearing winter’s roaring mouth?
Could they be in a Mexican camp ground?

The wasps and bees, well, they disappear too
But I give no thought to the stinging crew
     As surely as the sun shines
     I miss crickets’ unique whines
But in spring their songs will return on cue

Spring Chicken

 limerick 

There was a spring chicken named Brewster.
He was the school’s number one booster,
      but this spring he forward-sprang
      from the girls’ room overhang.
Now he’s called - the naughty old rooster.

Indian Rock - And How It Was Taken

INDIAN ROCK - AND HOW IT WAS TAKEN

They came to the hills with intent,
Offering worship and praise as they went.
The rock with two hands
On my grandparent’s lands
Held a mystical song, most reverent.

One year the museum man came
From a place with a big, fancy name;
He ordered the stone
To find a new home,
So east went the rock with acclaim.

My Grandma, both worried and stirred;
To the people, she couldn’t send word.
In the spring they appeared
Holding gifts as they neared,
‘Imminent Domain’ a term they’d never heard.

That summer, when she heard their soft knock,
She told them how she tried to block,
But the men most insistent,
And oh, most persistent
Served papers to take charge of the rock.

Now the rock sits away from the sun;
Children gaze at the hands, but no one
Kneels before it in praise
Feeling summer’s full rays,
Giving thanks for all that God’s done.



[This is a true story In the early 1970’s, a rock of pink granite, with two carved hands facing 
the rising sun, was removed from my grandparent’s pasture by people from the Museum of 
Natural History It was to be part of an exhibit on Indian Culture And yes, they had papers 
Grandma cried the following summer when the people appeared on the day before summer 
solstice She cried when she told them of the rock’s removal They did not cry They held 
out gifts, insisting Grandma accept Then they left They did not return again.]

Two Leaves

Two girls lived upon Sycamore.
Close as any friends were before.
Despite rainy, spring day
They'd laugh and they'd play
In matching green dresses they wore

Said one to the other in May,
"My dear, you look pretty today
In your beautiful dress
What a grace you possess
Forever will we be this way!"

But as time went by and they grew
The winds of change came blowing through.
Though neither knew why
And they still lived nearby
The times that they shared became few

As dog days of summer lolled by
The ground like their friendship went dry
They both suffered alone
Thinking,  "Now that I've grown
She has long since cast me aside."

At last on one September night
Beneath a pale harvest moon light
When neither expected
They both reconnected
She said,  "My dear,  aren't you a sight!"

"Your dress, oh the color transcends
Though wrinkled and curled at the ends,
And see, mine is the same."
And once more they became
The closest and dearest of friends

But each colder day that went past
Twas shorter the rays the sun cast
Soon their generation
Succumbed from their station, 
But they and their friendship held fast

Together on winter's first freeze
They exhaled the autumn's last breeze.
With their stems intertwined
If you search you can find
Lightly buried in snow: Two Leaves.

Mango Spring

Tantalizing green was the color of spring green mangoes.
Sitting high, calling out to me again from the windows!
Pray a strong wind comes around
Lays them down on the ground
How I want to taste them, but “You'll fall sick” ,Ma echoes!

SPRING HAS SPRUNG

Spring has sprung, noticing on my way out
The budding vegetation seems to stand up and shout
“Look at me!” fave time of the year
They stand tall, most without fear
Yep, surely spring has come-Live on bud sprout!

Next Thing to Believe

Why do we believe the hype they spread?
Next year they say we all might be dead
This spring all will shut down
Does this bring you a frown?
Rise of gasoline with rise of bread

We seem to believe whatever they say
Why are their words now gospel today
We are losing freedoms
More or less, like kingdoms
We left one of these, for freedom to pray

Let’s see if a rumor I start unfurls
Our new cars will be run by squirrels
Fueled by nuts and acorns
But never peppercorns
Because if you do, the car just twirls

Finding Jacqueline

From my window, I saw spring flowers
Kissed by morning's radiance
You were my cloud of joy
Touching me with your charm
You awakened me from dream to thee
Love was in the air when I looked up
A moment of clarity sparkled
Love's rebirth arrived with you, my love
You illuminated the chambers of my heart
You, like kaleidoscopic pastels
Of spring flowers graced my space
In visions, with your loveliness, capturing me

I was in transit
Yet, sifting through pages of time
Again you emerged; as I unearth my symbol of love
Letters and numbers were blessings in disguise
A printed flower called Jacqueline, graced sheets of white
Your voice became a sweet soothing sound to my soul
I sat in awe, poised with pen on sheets of white
There you were, as pure as precious luck
Or is it, we should stay in touch?

Happy

To die before you die is worse then death itself.
Time doesn’t stop as you are sprung backwards.
Now you have to climb forward
Desperately yearning to revert to your normal self.
Desperately wanting something to spring you back to where you were, happy

Unspeakable Love


Unspeakable love, the ultimate rush
A love that causes the roses to blush
In the spring even the birds
Can love without using words
Or maybe it's only a secret crush

Limerick: Once crazy Coot in spring chased female Coot

Once crazy Coot in spring chased female Coot
She squawked and shrieked and refused the suit:
He dived and swam up close
Then bit her tail and rose:
Jumped, did his bit and didn’t give a hoot !

Spring Pogo Stick Tricks

There once was a boy with two sticks.
He bounced on both pogos; planned tricks.
One day he fell down
He laughed like a clown.
Then, sprung off; one foot on each stick.
