Poetry Sunday-Snow Go!




Snow Go!


O Woe,

There’s still snow.

Spring should be here, but the snow won’t go.


O So,

It’s too slow.

For March has come, and the garden wants to grow.


Go Go,

It’s time for you snow,

To leave us behind, and let the warm winds blow.


O Ho,

The bright sun glows.

Chasing the cold from the soil below.


Grow Grow,

For it’s time to sow.

The new life in the garden has now begun to flow.

This poem has me praying to Mother Nature for a March spring.  I love winter, but it is time for it to go and let spring slide on in!  As March continues this gardener’s patience will be tested as there is lot’s of snow to go….



I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.  Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.

oh no snow

I am also linking in with the I Heart Macro meme hosted by Laura@Shine The Divine that happens every Saturday, and with Judith@Lavender Cottage who is hosting Mosaic Monday.  



If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs. 



Special Note:  The snow in these pictures is recent and piled up to over 5 feet in my garden and 6 feet in some spots.  We are patiently waiting got it to melt and go away….all of it!  It seems the critters are too judging by these little vole prints in the above shot.



I leave you with a few words of the “snow go” prayer.   I welcome you to download the photo and share it.

  1. Thankfully we do not have to wait for five inches of snow to melt here..but as soon as spring seems to come..down the rain pours…spring will certainly be welcomed

    1. It will take quite a while for the 5 feet of snow to melt and then I am sure april showers will then be adding more water to the flooded areas…by May the garden finally dries out to enjoy.

  2. hahahah i share your sentiment…i so want the snow to be gone…and spring to come…
    it is starting to melt which is a good thing…it was a lovely day yesterday
    moderately warm….maybe soon

  3. Indeed it is time for the snow to go! We had a pretty major melt yesterday, and it will continue into this week. But it will take more than that for all the large piles to melt away. And yes, the garden wants to grow! Go, snow.

  4. Oh, Donna, I just adore your spring poem!
    The images are beautiful. Snow and sun are so much better than the sleet and slush we have!
    Have a lovely week ahead!

  5. Wow, you did a superb job of of incorporating all those oh-sounding rhymes seamlessly into a poem that totally makes sense while delighting with unpredictability! Love it.

  6. What a glorious image. For me, at least whose reality is snow free.
    Love it – and your heart felt poem.
    Here my garden is also challenged. For very different reasons. If I weeded every day from now until Christmas I might, just might, be on top of it.

    1. Oh Soosie you are so sweet to love my snow….I could change the words a bit to fit your weeds…..Weeds Go! I will be singing that song soon enough I am sure.

  7. We had a wonderful day here.. it was like an early gift of warmth.. 15 C and clear skies. Wonderful.. I love the repetitions and this prayer for a spring to come.. Have a wonderful Sunday.

    1. It is wonderful to hear you are getting better weather…just starting here with 40 degree day. The repetition was fun to do…glad you enjoyed it too Bjorn.

  8. I know the impatience of March gardeners! Hope your snow melts soon. On the west coast our spring comes very early, it has been here some weeks already, we are lucky.

    1. Yes great impatience here Sherry. How very lovely that spring comes early there…I will have to remember that when I am looking for a bit of early spring.

  9. haha! this made me smile Donna. luckily in Tokyo, it seldom snow.

    I hope the snow won’t misinterpret “go snow”. it may think you are asking to have more snow

    1. Oh that is too bad Donna. We had about 35 yesterday and 41 today. In the 40s for next few days and then high 30s…I hope that forecast holds as the snow is definitely melting now.

  10. warm wishes for a “soon to go snow”; what a delightful little ditty

    thanks for stopping by my Sunday Lime today

    much love…

  11. Donna, really like the use of rhyme here, and the feeling of the white stuff, although welcoming at the start of winter, has now overstayed its long visit! Let’s hope it gets the message and melts, soon!


  12. Hello Donna, Cute poem. I want the snow to go too. I am so ready for spring to arrive.. Lovely images!

    Happy Monday, have a great week ahead!

  13. coming from the tropics, i really love to see and feel the snow!
    enjoyed reading your fun, but well-crafted poem. 🙂

    1. Join us in the NE US any winter and you will get your fill of snow….it is quite a treat but now it is spring’s turn to shine here. Glad you liked the poem.

  14. We’re into a small heatwave of temperatures above freezing. When the snow melts we won’t see those cute little footprints, only the damage they’ve done. 🙂
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Donna.

  15. Your cry from the heart is sincerely felt but from where I am sitting the snow looks beautiful.

  16. I’m running outside to read your poem to the snow that has been covering the ground for weeks (but feels like forever). Love the tone of the piece!

  17. Oh Donna, this is such a fun poem! Love the flow and rhyme! And yes it’s time for snow to go! It has warmed up here a bit and the sun was out today 🙂

  18. I love the phrase ‘and the garden wants to grow!’ Lying deep underneath 5 feet of snow it’s a lovely happy image. I look forward to seeing your garden growing… Go Snow indeed!

  19. Love this poem! I’m of two minds about the snow. On the one hand, I’m eager to see it melt and to see new green shoots and flowers emerge. On the other hand, the frost is so deep this year, I’m worried about mud season and for that reason, would prefer a slower, more gradual thaw.

    1. I completely agree Jean…I am impatient to have it all gone, but I know if we don’t have a slow melt we will have a flood that will render my garden unavailable for a long time. So I am opting for the slow thaw in hopes that we won’t have a big flood.

  20. Thank you for offering your prayer. I think we are all ready for some spring action. Nice snowprints! They look a little bit like a vine.

  21. This is my first winter in 30 without snow… But I remember last winter in West Michigan and can relate to how you are feeling. I loved the cross-country skiing but my March was ready to sail and paddle.

  22. I’m listening to tiny drops, many tiny drops, an orchestra of snow dripping off the roof… what a beautiful sound!!! I enjoyed your poems and beautiful photos. Thanks as always for sharing the love up-close Donna:-)

  23. I can’t imagine the huge changes in seasons you have. I would love to be in the snow one year, but I can understand how you get tired of it. Spring is so magical. Have a lovely week and thank you for stopping by my blog.

  24. Wonderful snow photos, Donna. We have hardly had any snow this winter, at least no lying snow. Thank you for your poetry and for the link to Poets United.

    1. Thanks Jen….since I posted this we have been having a nice melt with temp in the 40s…about a foot gone and I hope a foot more by the weekend…by then maybe only a foot or 2 to go by spring…birds who are here all winter are singing again.

  25. I’m all ready for Spring too!!! Altho, we don’t get snow down this far south, it sure has been a long, cold, and very damp winter for us. I’m ready for green/flowers and birdsong.
