Only spring themed please...

April snow rains down.
Bright tulip faces peek through.
Winter's blessings end.

Do we have to make them up on our own or find them?

Why only Spring ones?
Can't we write of beer and chips
in a hotel room?

jrc - you can find them or make them up.

BBFF - you can make them about beer and chips as long as there is a flower in there somewhere

Like this:

Beer and Chips are great
Hotel rooms are good too but
Flower bedspreads suck.

Here's a serious one.

Springtime fragrance wafts
In the early morning dawn
Bringing a new day

I have sarcococca hookeriana planted outside the front door. For those who don't know it, it gets an early, very small white-ish flower that you can't hardly see because it grows at the base of the leaf, and the smell is one of the first to come out in spring. Love it.

Rain and mud and wind; not fun
Love summer rumblers.

sarcococca hookeriana

Sounds like a parasitic infestation! However, Himalayan Sweet Box sounds

I miss the night-blooming jasmine and citrus blossums in AZ.

What about flour?
Beer battered chips need flour!
Beer, chips, and flour.

sarcococca hookeriana
Sounds like a parasitic infestation! However, Himalayan Sweet Box sounds
An STD, and the source therof?

flour and flower are homophones, therefore the same number of syllables.

Unfortunately,
The warmer temperatures
Have unleashed stinkbugs.


This above all: to thine ownself be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Spring in DC means
Blasted tourist season
They are ev'rywhere!

They wear fanny packs
Fill up the escalator
And yell on metro

Stand on the right so
Locals can pass on the left
And move at the end

Don't stand in the way
Ask if you need directions
Really, we don't bite

Stand close to your friend
Talk quietly just to them
There's no need to shout

We have a game here
Judging you on clothes and accent
Guessing where you're from

Hey BFF, I have several of these planted where I can smell them getting out of the car, or if I can open a window for a quick bit of fresh air, or if I go out on the patio.

This gets my vote!

Spring has sprung, they say.
I wore spring clothes this morning.
Almost froze my ass!

Edited to add: It's 8C here now, expected to jump (like hopscotch jump) to 23C this afternoon. What a fricking country!
