Just for fun, Motorcycles, Poetry

it’s almost spring


Many motorcycle riders spend most of the winter wishing it were summer.

This poem is about that.

it’s almost spring

by susan © 2023

it’s almost spring

the sun is out,
the sky is blue
hey look,
it’s almost minus two!

spring no doubt
is on the way
two more months
the pundits say

get your gear out
polish leathers
pay close attention
to the weather

see how warm
the days are getting?
we’ll be riding soon
i’m betting

sixty sleeps
is not that many
far fewer than
four score and twenty

take heart, oh riders,
don’t despair
a season new
is in the air
