Kidlit Spring Fling... What's up with this weather?!

**UPDATE: My poem made the finalists! Yay!**

Spring is here with it's unpredictable weather...

    Raining? Probably. 

        Sunny? Could be. 

            Snowing? Definitely if you just put away your snow boots. 

                 Windy? You betcha. 

                        Forecast that you dressed wrong? 95% chance.

Here is my silly reflection on wild spring weather... 

The Weather is Funny (140 words) 

Winter and spring
are having a fight. 
It’s warm through the day,

then freezing at night.


Yesterday’s snowman

melted to runny.

It’s sleeting a rainbow.

This weather is funny!


A robin regrets

returning so soon.

The black bear decides

to sleep until June.


I try to go fishing,

the water looks nice.

But I cast so slowly—

my hook's stuck in ice.


I wear thirty layers

to start off the day

I’m baking at recess

too sweaty to play.


My lemonade stand

on a warm afternoon

becomes frozen slushies

to eat with a spoon.


All of these changes

are making me twitch.

Is somebody pushing

the temperature switch?


I’m plowing a path,

but snow hasn’t fallen.

My shovel is scooping                                   

a blizzard of pollen!

Springtime has won!
Mosquitoes are humming.
But why’s it so hot? 

Uh oh—summer is coming!
