A Poem for Warm Weather

A Spartan helmet rests on rocks with a blurry background.

Hey, everybody, I can hardly believe that we’re in third quarter already!

It was quite a bit warmer today than it has been and the afternoon Algebra II class was held outside. Sadly, as everyone who’s lived long in Colorado knows, the warm weather won’t stay long, but it’s nice while it lasts.

This small break from below freezing temperatures and frost covering the windshield in the morning means that Winter is getting closer to its end and Spring will be coming soon. Enjoy the long weekend, remember that we’re already in the last semester of the 2017-18 school year, and finish the year strong!

Here’s a little poem I wrote to celebrate the slightly warmer weather. Hope you all enjoy it:

The barren coldness of the Winter

Is not yet gone completely

But for the moment Spring has come

And it’s rain, not snow,

That hangs in the clouds above.

The nights are no longer

Quite so gray

And stars are shining softer

In the warmer, sweeter air.

Throw open your doors and windows

To catch this fleeting breath of stirring life

And treasure it,


As the days grow dark and cold once more,

That Winter cannot last forever

And Spring will come again.
