Fickle Feet

It's April that is teasing us this year.  I have traded the short sleeves and sandals for sweaters, socks and sneakers this week.

"Salena's Sandals"

March teases me
With spring,
Dishing up
A day of sun,
Of warmth and fun:
Summer picnics
At the beach,
In easy reach,
Cruising town
In sandaled feet,
Slurping ice cream
Cool and sweet.
Water fights,
Humid days,
Muggy nights.
Then I recall --
Spring's just a tease.

And cover my toes
Before they freeze.
