The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

Sitting still, peaceful,
the endless tempest outside
makes me want to hurl.

There once was a month we called May.
The sun would come out and we'd play.
But then it stayed drear
When it should have been clear
For three weeks there's been nothing but gray.


I may be exaggerating the severity of the weather, but I thought I would try to express some of my frustration in silly poetry.  I'm not sure it worked, but hopefully someone was amused by it.

For those of you who weren't, here are some of my favorite picks from what's available on Piperlime right now.  A girl's got to go somewhere with a lot of choice to do her pick-me-up online window shopping.  Click through any of the images to check them out, some are even on sale!

I think the poems should be a weekly or monthly thing. I also miss the cartoons, btw!

I agree with Mary Lane, more poems and more drawings are needed ASAP! I can totally relate to your frustration with the weather, I had to unpack sweaters from my winter box the other day! This spring has been horrendous! Hopefully it will warm up soon so you get your fill of vitamin D!
