We had a pretty dry winter,
Near-record amounts of no snow.
Now with a short shot of sunshine,
I’m getting anxious to go.
The calendar says it’s too early,
But it seems like the ground is dry.
Perhaps I should put my seeds out there
To wait for some rain from the sky.
It’s time to open up shed doors,
Pull out a tractor and truck,
See if the discs on the planter
Will spin or are they froze stuck.
