It's a rhyming sort of day, isn't it? Thanks to the Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge, hosted by Angel Sammy, it's always easy to get poetic.
The Spring Tease
If there was on thing Mr. and Mrs. Cat knew about spring,
It was that the season was none other than a tease.
Despite the fact that they knew all about this,
They still met the arrival of spring with nothing but excitement.
It was sunny and warm on spring's first day,
And Mr. and Mrs. Cat hoped the nice weather had come to stay.
They happily headed out to their garden.
After all, by winter the ground was no longer hardened.
Mr. and Mrs. Cat prepared the garden, pruned the bushes, and watered the lawn.
Then for the evening they went inside with a yawn.
With them they brought bundles of already blooming flowers,
Placing them in vases and with them making the house look far from sour.
Through the kitchen window Mr. and Mrs. Cat admired their work.
They looked at the bushes and flowers outside with a smile and smirk.
Then they brewed some coffee to top off the night,
All still while keeping their colorful spring blooms outside in their sight.
Before long, Mr. and Mrs. Cat began discussing what they would do tomorrow.
Mr. Cat said, "To put the final touches on the garden, Mr. Mutt's tiller we'll need to borrow."
Mrs. Cat suggested, "After that, how about a picnic for lunch?"
With a smile, Mr. Cat said, "I would like that a bunch."
The two discussed what to make for the picnic,
Deciding on sandwiches and salad topped with balsamic.
Mr. Cat returned his gaze to the window, sighed, and said, "Well, shoot.
I guess there's no need to rush, because the point is now moot."
Mrs. Cat asked, "What do you mean?"
Mr. Cat replied, "Look outside and see for yourself the sight quite obscene."
Doing just that, Mrs. Cat saw the snow now falling from the sky.
Around their garden and bushes drifts were already piling high.
Mrs. Cat said, "Well, would you look at that."
A sigh escaped both Mr. and Mrs. Cat
Finally, shrugging, Mr. Cat said, "Well, at least we have coffee to keep us warm.
Until spring decides to truly arrive, we'll weather this storm."
Mrs. Cat nodded and replied, "And once the snow has melted and spring has really sprung,
We'll feast at many a picnic beneath the warm sun.
That said, while I do quite enjoy spring,
I do wish it wasn't such a tease."
And now it's of course time for Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
