No Winter This Year!.... No! None At All!


no winter this year, no! none at all!
the ducks dilly dally, honeybees in the fall!

my dry cleaners said "no need for your coat!
I'll get to it when, I dock my sailboat!"

anthills getting bigger, their soldiers don't hurry!
I checked the forecast, no chance of a flurry!

the blueberry tea, I've been served alfresco,
stays quite piping hot! thank you Ernesto!

my finest snow angel, about to appear,
must take a raincheck! with Santa's Reindeer!

the heavens above, must surely have reasons,
postponing ice fishing, and blurring the seasons!

I'll wait two more weeks, before I declare!
"remove thin-ice signs! steep drop-off beware!"

Mischievous Spring

A mischievous season called Spring
Liked to tickle the tree tops an’ ting
And teach songs to the birds
Full of old fashioned words
Oh the rude songs Spring taught them to sing!

Spring liked to laugh, and to run
On the hill tops and wind up the sun
With a glint in her eye
And the hint of a thigh
And her hair down and buttons undone

Sometimes she’d knock off a joke
How the squirrels would squeak as she spoke
And oh how the tits
Loved the sniggery bits
Of the ones for the feistier folk!

Spring liked the tease and the chase
Oh the flirtatious look on her face!
Catch me!  She’d say
Always getting away
Well, not always A time, and a place

A word, Winter said, in your ear
You’re crossing a line here, I fear
Enough of the bants
And the flashing of pants
It’s most unbecoming, my dear

Winter, said Spring, you’re as old
And as wet and as grey and as cold
As a sheep in the mud
While I’ve fire in my blood
I shall not do a thing that I’m told!

And off she went, flicking the Vs
I am Spring, and I’ll do what I please!
Off to dance in the ring
With no knickers an’ ting
And to tickle the leaves in the trees

FLOWER ARRANGEMENT The dandy wind pillows soft seeds, That fly o’er the green grass and breeds. A Winter of snow, And springtime sun glow ~ He loves me he loves me not weeds. 11/8/2017

A Cold Winter

The winter has honed its attack.
“I'm freezing!” my butt shrieks alack,
as up climb the freezes
from toes passed the knees-es.
It's so cold my foreskin grew back!

Withstanding bitter winds through winter thrust
Windswept snowfall in streaks of icy gust
Fighting off polar windstorm 
Behind windshield keeping warm
In flimsy windbreakers we put our trust

     Long icicles hang, one by one;
     thick icicles shine in the sun.
     As icicles melt
     to icicles, svelte,
     thin icicles drip till there's none.

EXHIBITIONIST (on purpose)

Showing off the ultimate bathing fright,
worked all winter preparing a delight.
Laid off the usual beer,
summer now finally here.
His Speedo package outrageous and tight!

Undone Hidden Flaws

There once was a garden in Thomaston
But all the hidden flaws show now in sun
     Bombarded by winter cold
     Delicate Easter dress bold
Became frozen, tattered, falling undone

Now that lovely garden in Thomaston
Back in early spring's golden rays of sun
      Rose blooms, tulips open tips
      Flawless are flowers no thrips
Remember Rose Trellis_ love's embrace spun

Portrait of Paula

Written: October 3, 2010

There once was a lady named Paula
Who loved to shop at the Mall-a.
She shopped ‘til she “dropped.”
She shopped and she shopped
Every Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall-a.

Christmas time put her skills to the test.
It was when Paula proved she was best.
The crowds stood amazed.
Paula could shop for days
Without losing her holiday zest.

Gail's note: Inspired by my friend Paula.

Hold the extinguisher tight! Run if he burps Or makes a chirp His cocoa had knockout drops

Spring Forward

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.

Ground Hog Day

Ground Hog Day We know every year comes the day We see if our Winter will stay… The Ground Hog will show By shadow we’ll know If we can put snow gear away. If he sees his shadow at all Then Winter will stay here on call… No shadow means great! Spring’s right at the gate! Let’s dance and go have us a ball! However I heard from good source Phil Ground Hog will have no remorse… He will not come out You better not pout If Springtime goes far off its course! © Sandra MHaight 2014 All Rights Reserved ~NA~ Contest: Punxsutawney Phil Speaks Sponsor: John Lawless Judged: 02/02/2015

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?

Green 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’ scratching lines
But in spring their songs will return on cue

Rock - Paper - Scissors


Paper Snowflake


Upon the rock of summer that teem
with scissors I forge a winter dream
with paper of white
and visions of flight
each snowflake dance with sunlight gleam

The First Breath Of Spring

There are many things in life I look forward to still The first breath of spring, the sun as it peeks over the hill When the robins first arrive Means that winter we've survived As we run through fields of yellow daffodils © Jack Ellison 2015

Cold Days

Cold Days
DrJames EMartin
©January, 2014

Days of summer are now gone.
Cold winter days we’re shown.
My great desire,
Is to sit by the fire,
Until greatly warmer I have grown.

Is This It

Is this the day, the one that we all fear?
Yes, 12/21/2012 is now here!
The day of that great winter solstice
That the ancient Mayans have told us
Signals the start of Galactic New Year!

Is today the day that begins the New Age
And turns right over that great Cosmic Page?
The Aquarian Age that's replacing the Piscean
Which we will all be intellectually free in?

Who can honestly explain
What's happening on this Plane
Or will we remain in the dark
Occasionally sighting a spark?

What all should we do
To make this come true
For me and for you
To get the Truth through?

Don't stack your winter clothes away,
rain or cold may return to play;
mad weather brings blues,
happy music soothes 
when sunshine tricks May!

In the Spring

Limerick: Once a Firebrand Fraulein from the Black Forest

Limerick : Once a Firebrand Fräulein from the Black Forest

 Once a Firebrand Fräulein from the Black Forest
In winter went out to cut wood sans vest
In fact sans Lederhose
Nor even horse fire hose
So she got fired on wood with zest.

So she got fired for good in jest.

So she got fired by Crook in earnest.

So she got fired in crook by Earnest.

So she got fired with Earnest in the nest.

(and so on and on…)

Winter Woody

There was an old man in the nude,
His wife was a bit of a prude,
As winter got chilly,
He played with his willy,
And asked if she’d rather be screwed.

February 2

When Chucky Groundhog comes above,
He's looking for a lady love.
If he sees shadow,
It is spring's deathblow.
For six long weeks, winter won't move.

Silly Billy

The dark winter night was so chilly
So Viv downed some shots which was silly,
Then while driving on top
He was stopped by a cop.
When asked for his name he said Billy!

Lover's Gin

While I was sat drinking lemonade
the winter’s chilling sun started to fade
the calm before the storm 
perhaps another dawn
found in fizzy dreams of lemonade.

A hazy moonlit beach then appeared
my senses numbing as I had feared
as a pretty girl winked
at me, I dare not blink
in case she then went and disappeared.

The summer bronze reflected on her skin
her jewel like eyes just drank me in
an orchid in my gaze
to banish winter days
and I was caught in a lover’s gin.

Lovers live to hate

A hot steamy, winter day.
Made two hateful lovers stray.
For together they were apart.
But, apart they lived with dead hearts.
They were visible by the fade

With a final blow, they forever killed.
The contained blood, spilled.
They hated to love.
They admitted this was undreamed of.
Together they emptied a cup by getting it filled.

Because they were only attracted by pushing away
Those two hateful lovers did stray.
By looking the other away they faced each other
They choose to love than hate the rather
So they both lived to kill today.

This winter has brought unrelenting gray
Unlit gray sky is all I've seen for days

falling on ice and fond wishes

"falling on ice"

I fell hard on my knee and asked for a plea
free me to stand so I can sit by the sea
so I crawled to the post
for some help at most
the joke is on me I may need surgery

my mission is this for all to be aware
look on the ground while moving slowly with care
so don't fall on your face
as you run a race
life isn't fair and at times its a nightmare

"fond wishes"

with beautiful white snow falling to the ground
there were sparkles of brightness without a sound
outdoors I went to see
nature on a tree
and now a warm indoor fire is my campground

still when will the elements of winter end
for inside with my balance I'm left to blend
may you stay warm and sure
walking out the door
to all fond wishes I now sincerely send

SkyWatcher  -  01-08-17

This is a little silly entry to distract my mind but honestly it has a message for all to be careful not to fall It is also a note to say I'm sorry I haven't been active with reviewing the works of others I thought I would have been active by now but more time is needed May this day find you all well and may you all keep enjoying poetry and PoetrySoup 

Thank you and again, don't fall.

Snow Boots

When streets are all covered with snow 
There's one thing I surely do know.
In order to stomp
On the snow hills and romp 
You need snow boots wherever you go.

Your toes will stay cozy and dry 
Even if more flakes fall from the sky.
Every puddle awaits
So 'till winter abates
Kiss your usual footwear goodbye.

A drink to the cold

The Winter weather is here and it's cold
Colds not much fun if you are homeless or old
But some like cold cheer
And drink ice cold beer
But when you're cold whiskeys' best so I'm told.

Approaching and Almost Winter

Approaching and Almost Winter

Was almost winter and things have gone;
No longer active or alive is my nice lawn;
Remember when,
Darkness set in;
My lovely fall leaves nature did abscond.

Daylight is less so now I only see things
for a shorter amount of time

While Starving

Did discover what people the most will dread;
It Is when they find themselves not well fed;
Shriveled up were,
Which would occur,
While starving and so much weight did shed.

Jim Horn
