THE POLAR VORTEX FEBRUARY 28 2015 - CHICAGO


Wake me in April when the birds are in the trees

Wake me in April when mornings do not freeze

Wake me in April when it’s doubtful it will snow

Wake me in April when the heating bill is low


Wake me in April when children play outside

Wake me in April when Winter shall subside

Wake me in April when Baseball starts to play

Wake me in April when Easter’s on its way


Wake me in April when the trees begin to bud

Wake me in April when freeze has melted into mud


Wake me in April when daffodils start to smile

Wake me in April when the snow just does NOT pile

And pile

And pile

And PILE


Wake me in April when turtledoves start to coo

Wake me in April, which is when I fell in love with you


And then I will remember a love from distant time

When love was so much warmer

And Candy Bars were a dime.

Thanks.

Charming at Best!

It was just…"there."

Had to get it out of my head.

Been a cold winter.

More snow last year. But seems colder this year.

Polar Vortex one of the terms on the 40th Annual List of Words That Should Be Banished. Other than that, your poem is terrifically irritating enough that if a kid showed up singing it outside my door I'd sic my dog on him.

The winter has been that bad.
