Springtime Awaits, a quadrille

The dVerse challenge for today is to write a Quadrille, 44 words which must include the word eye in the main body of the poem.

wet snowflakes evaporate
on sidewalks and pavements
while old man winter
gives me the evil eye
banshee winds blast, an exhalation
of dark cloud-covered skies
while spring's sweet anthems wait to arrive 
voiced in brilliant birdsong
white pear trees burst forth in blossoms

  1. Colleen, sounds about right and you know I know what MI weather is all about. Wonderful quadrille and nice to see you at dVerse.

  2. Ah…you’ve captured Old Man Winter’s final stand so well here….and the glee of spring’s arrival….most beautiful inserting the pear tree.

      1. Welcome, dear Colleen! You get to experience and write such beautiful seasons. Without the experience, it is very difficult to look at pictures and write about seasons.BTW your haiku are lovely🙂❤️

      1. My pleasure, Colleen! Our forecast indicates we will have 20s and 30s this coming weekend. I hope this is winter’s last blast.
