Spring Cleaning Day


Spring Cleaning Day*


The strain of a deep winter's frost

Has taken it's toll and I've paid the cost

Layers of loam, dust and grime

Have collected and built up over time

Spring now arrives, newness begins

But my windowed soul is still in a spin

Try as I must to chisel away

The soot on my soul for it's spring cleaning day

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
