Spring has Sprung Me Into a Tizzy

I woke to the sights of Spring today

A time that I love and a time I dread

Cause there’s so much  I see ahead

Before summer makes its entrance


Spring has sprung me into a tizzy

Awaken my spirit from a long reserve

Hibernation has kept me well conserved

I believe freedom is now in the air


Time to resume, conclude from hiding

To reform myself and all my grounds

To work off all those winter pounds

And get off thy lazy butt


Time to pull out those summer clothes

Refuse those tempting cookies and pies

Curse my chocolate indulging thighs

And squeeeeeze into my swimsuit


Time to break out my Taebo tapes

Pay to bake beneath UV rays

Walk my dog into a daze

All because I heard the birds today


Time to peel back all the layers

Revealing myself like the flowers

Jumpstart myself and find the power

No time to procrastinate


Time to connect with natures trends

To paint my toes and dye my hair

Store away my granny underwear

And put the bra back on


Time to eat my veggies first

Sport backless dresses and flip flops

Wear daisy dukes and halter tops

Damn, that means I must shave my legs
All this because I heard the birds!
Author's Notes:
I wrote this after hanging up the phone with my friend..we were laughing about all the things we have to do to get ready for summer..she talked about her granny underware and I laughed and said about up keeping on grooming the yard and ourselves...this was the result.

Cabin fever is over for us and even the sun will shine longer too.

Time springs forward in an extra hour to remind us we are due.

Ah yes spring! How I long to feel the warmth of the sun and play around in the yard with the plants and veggies. Women, as is usually the case have so much more to prepare for, while us men just get up, shower, comb our hair and we're ready to face the day. Sad but true Sheri, your to do list is just too damn long! LOL, great poem Sheri, very enjoyable read.  Hugs,   Henry

Dang, that makes you sound like a "hippie"  Love the line  "No time to procrastinate"  I've decided I'm not going to procrastinate any more either, but I'm going to start tomorrow.  The rest of it ... sounds nice to me.  Winter lasted far too long this year.  The other day I had 27 robins in my front yard.
Shaving???   What is that.  I haven't shaved in 30 years.  But then, Santa just wouldn't be Santa without a white beard.    My legs, thank God, are covered by my pants.  I'd hate to see all those people drop dead laughing.
Good springtime poem

I am so with you on this one. My husband was trying to be so nice and he told me to put my new bikini on the fridge to be sure That I am confident enough to wear it. OF course he thinks I am just beautiful the way I am. I love the part about the bra and the shaving of course the granny this is right on!
