To Many Winters
Is it really winter or is it spring
There's Dogwood Winter when dogwoods bloom
Brings only one winter I would assume
I've counted more maybe two or three
It can't be the Easter Flurry or can it be
Maybe Blackberry Winter came early this year
I seriously doubt the blooms are here
The Mountain Laurel is yet to come
Or Wild Rhododendron known to some
The snowball bush is the best of all
A Snowball Winter without a snowfall
Oh a pretty, little catbird just flew by
Could Catbird Winter be almost nigh
So many winters I can't keep in mind
By Whippoor-will Winter it'll be summer-time
I'll sit back and enjoy summer so
And hope there's not a winter firefly show
Whew, I hope I've covered them all but I know I haven't.
There's a few more that I've heard the older people talk about.
Just couldn't make room for all of them in my pea brain.
If anyone wants to add some more, feel free to do so.
