On Day 2 of the new season, I really really wanted to write an Ode to Spring, with sonnets and poems and crocuses and newborn foals running free in Gantry Park. Instead we got a SNOW DAY!!! Sure, I’m now a grown getting paid by the
hour word, but when our Mayor waved his magic wand I felt obliged to obey. So instead of ballads and verse, I offer ye a limerick, not one I composed myself, but not one about Nantucket either – thank you world wide web:

It’s the first day of spring? I don’t buy it,
Cuz the elements surely defy it;
Twelve inches of snow
Are on route here, so NO!
Don’t insist that it’s spring. I’ll deny it.
