Let’s Not Miss a Moment

The Master’s Marvel –

Is Sir Spring Stunned by a Sudden Snowstorm?

Yesterday, Sir Spring had sprung.

The earth was vital, verdant, young.

He didn’t see it flip its flow

To fill the field with falling snow.

A fancy foal, he yet extolled,

Ere aging days should make him old -

“Hey, here I am!” he softly spoke.

“Why has Sir Spring gone up in smoke?”

Perhaps tomorrow we’ll make hay;

Today we’ll frolic, roll and play.

As jumbled seasons mingle here,

May we not miss a moment’s cheer.

  1. Hi I just wanted to let you know that you linked up to the Friday Funny Meme and I didn't see your Friday Funny post so I've had to delete your link okay. This meme is for clean funny stories, pictures, videos etc.
    Thanks for understanding.

  2. Your poem is pure joy and fancy! I love it! I think Spring is playing a little trick on all of us this year!

    That foal is gorgeous!

  3. Enjoyed your playful lines - and what a handsome horse!

  4. Hi, "THE REAL ME" -

    The link I posted on FRIDAY FUNNY actually fit your SHOW AND TELL SATURDAY, but I didn't see your post for this week.


  5. Show and TEll Saturdays was postponed till next week as I was unplugged on Friday so I moved my Funnies to SAturday and just canceled Show and Tell until next Saturday. It was a really confusing post last week you probably missed it. I will have the next theme for Show and Tell up on my blog Monday.
    Thanks again.

  6. A wonderful use of the prompt! Nice photo!

  7. A good roll in the snow could be fun, but I'd be bundling up enough to look like a "South Park" kid before I tried it ;)
