May's Paint Brush

This poet optimistically believes warm weather is on the way for Canadians too!

Some shots from last May... 
(I tried for a few hours to add a few more photos but the internet simply does not stay connected!!)
Why does that happen after a year+ of uninterrupted service?
There was nothing to fix or adjust here.
It looks like shopping for a new internet provider is the next hassle
+ dealing with the grubs that are feeding the skunks that are chewing up the lawn + getting our yard cleaned up and reseeded after all the winter digging due to flooding problems + OH! Right...
I'm talking about beautiful May in this poem;-)

The brush of May spills plushest pink
And lushest sweeps of green
Beneath the biggest bluest blink
That Time has ever seen

The aftermath of winter weaves
A crown of purest form
With flower-stars and froth of leaves
That takes the world by storm

While we, cold-weary, soak our smiles
In sunshine’s yellow sea
Where Beauty all around beguiles
Our gaze with poetry

For we have crossed the frosted fields
And snow-tossed mains of mud
Where (just as promised) waiting yields
The wonderment of bud

And we, winter’s forgivers now
Are glad to be a part
Of nature’s finest picture-show
In springtime’s world of art
