Spring Whether

The weather in Springtime is very uncertain.
It can’t decide whether it’s hot or it’s cold.
It doesn’t know whether to pour or to sprinkle
or whether to simply keep raindrops on hold.

The weather in Springtime is quite indecisive,
and that’s why you’ll find in a week, or a day,
it’ll rain and be sunny and cold and too hot.
We never know whether we’ll go out to play!

This poem was first published in The Caterpillar, Issue 20, Spring 2018. It is also in my poetry book, To Rhyme or Not to Rhyme? (Glimmer Press, 2019).

  1. Hi Kristin,

    Yes you are correct. Today the whether is similar like that. We went to the park with our friends in the hot weather but it turned windy and cold suddenly in the afternoon. So we came back home soon. I couldn’t play enough.

    Thanks for the poem. I enjoyed it,


  2. Spring is an unusual season. It has it’s positives and negatives such as hayfever happens and then there are new plants and beauty of nature. But the poem is beautiful.

  3. Great poem!
    I was born in Spring but its one of my least favourite seasons because of the unpredictable weather and hay fever, I prefer Autumn or Winter. What about you?

  4. I love spring time because of all the new flowers that come and because it means its almost time to get in the pool.
