Half-Spring by Kellyn Roth

Today I wrote a poem to describe our weather here. πŸ™‚ Enjoy!

Half-Spring by Kellyn Roth (2/5/16)

So many things

That remind us of springs

That have already passed

Are here.

Like robins and flowers

And half-sunny hours

And prancing of baby


Yet the air is so crisp

The wind is so brisk

And the sky keeps on pouring down


When will spring come?

It arrives some by some

And soon we see things aren’t the


What do you think? I’d love to have constructive criticism! πŸ™‚

p.s. I’m pretty proud of my photography, but the credit really goes to my new camera. πŸ˜‰ And yes, I realize the photos aren’t that great. But I had limited subject matter!

What do you think of my thoughts?

      1. It’s better then some of the rhymes on pop sings. “House” and “Loud” DO NOT RYHME. (This is wear my faint OCDness kicks in). This is why I listen to Alternative Rock.

  3. Ooooh, I love that first photo! The poem was great too. Our weather isn’t like that here (aside from a deer that comes wandering around our house, but she’s not a baby, so not really). Here there’s snow…and more snow.

      1. Lucky! I think I live south-ish from you, and it’s just cold here. I think I’d much rather have rain than snow. I like the sound of rain…plus sometimes you get lightning storms which are awesome.
