Tired of puddles and gray

It's spring, the poet said,
and the world is puddle-wonderful,
conjuring up images
of children splashing
by the daffodils,
or vacations by the sea,
but not this steady drip drip drip
and gray, and having to allow
for extra time for everything
because the puddles rise above
our wheels, and dampen
all our energy...

Love that "puddle wonderful." I see we live in the same weather-zone (US=Pacific NW; Cda=Pac SW) and understand the discouragement with gray dampening all the energy!
