Posey Poesy Puddin’ Pie

Cleveland Winter

Posey Poesy Puddin’ Pie

Spring’s a’creepin’ round the cold
tipping tapping icicle toes
raining white on pre-green leaves
branching bare before they believe
peep and creep in seeking sun
shining smile for everyone
flowers bursting bloom in bright
celebrating warmth and light
heavy clothes slow disappear
bits of skin show here and there
flesh emerged from cold cocoon
wolves howl higher at the moon
lake loons leap in laughter mad
children play outside in glad
simple rhymes like these leak through
as basic poet does his do
shameless in greeting card rhyme
not even running from his crime
but until then I’ll be so bold
to predict more Cleveland cold
and ice and snow and wind and blow
cuz as usual spring comes slow
so leap and love and lick and like
I’ll see you soon some warm spring night
until then forgive this crap
I simply cannot shut my trap
cause all that’s then and this is now
just have to hold on somehow
until gloom and gray play their pass
or I can afford to buy some grass
