My soul longs for green grass and colorful landscapes.
Soon their jaunty heads will defy the snow you bring.
They are hearty and resilient flowers.
They must be to deal with you,
I know you and your ways.
I've learned to adapt to your capricious ways.
When I was just a child, my grandfather told me all about you.
He'd say, "If you don't like the weather in Colorado in the spring,
stick around for five minutes and it will change.
even though I know how you are,
I fall for your ways on those days when you bring us sunshine.
Your whimsical nature
makes me dream of sunny, warm days filled with flowers, and birds, and shady trees.
I imagine warm spring and summer evenings on the new patio I just had built
for those warm days to come.
On those days filled with your whimsy,
I forget how temperamental you can be.
The very next day,
you bring snow, and wind, and blizzards that keep me indoors and shut down traffic.

They are trying to eat pine needles on the tree they are under.
whenever it snows.
March, I know all about you.
you can be so volatile.
your days are coming to an end for this year.
I am so looking forward to
March has been as capricious as ever this year.
