Spring Thaw

Written on my iPhone while walking back from school on the first above freezing day in ages. Spring has sprung, I think.

It's actually rather quite pleasant today

The sun's out and shining the birds are quite gay

I know that the sidewalks are covered in slush


And the dog poop once frozen is now turned to mush

But they say to be thankfull for all that you've got

And it isn't too freezing nor terribly hot

So I guess that it's really quite pleasant today

The sun's out and shining and the birds are all gay

I love the message to this poem, however, I think using the word "gay" was a little too forced, I mean, the evolution of that word has changed alot over time...but I still know what you mean and I love it!
