I Don't Mean to Be Rude...

Dear Winter,

I think you may have misunderstood me.


Yes, I am grateful for all the moisture you gave us recently.





But really...



You could step aside now.







Give Spring a chance. 


It's the honorable thing to do. You've had your turn.


You've done your job.


But you are getting to be a bit annoying.
What if I wanted to sit down on a nice bench and listen to the birds?


I don't mean to be rude but I'd like some gentle Spring rain now, instead of snow. 
Don't take it personally.
Your snow is beautiful.
I like rain, too, though.
I don't have to scrape it off my windows.


You are welcome to come back after next Fall... but don't rush it.


Your's truly,
Sue
