A New Beginning / Spring 2014 Poem by Edward Iacona


I’ve sold my home on lovely Long Island
For several reasons and to escape Winterland.
And moved south to the warmth of Virginia
To my little house out in the hinterland.

There’s many a change in lifestyle
But this I really did not know
That it’s a forty minute drive
To the nearest Home Depot.

Spring has come to sunny Virginia and.
There are familiar sounds I know
So I got up and walked to look at
The birds outside my window.

There they were in my front yard
Standing on a lawn I’ll soon be mowing.
I think we all shared a sad sigh moment
Because it’s Spring and it is snowing.
