May has chased off winter’s freeze.
So awaken to a warm spring breeze.
A day needing only a pole and bait,
Those are the ones cherished and great
Travel from the fast city with its noisy cars
And lazily stare up at the twinkling stars.
Enjoy these days, long and bright
Before, again, they are out of sight.
Past Monthly Poems
old man winter is now defeated.
For behold the sunrise above the rivers,
and the rabbits emerge with one last shiver.
There now is rain to replace the dancing snow
to kiss the flowers so that they will grow.
Gone away are the colors dreary,
the browns and grays that makes men weary.
In their place are colors new and bright
like cheerful flowers, what a sight!
Hues of purples, reds and pinks
a wonderful replacement, don’t you think?
Seasons of Pittsburgh
When the city is yours to discover.
So much to do every weekend
And great places to take your friends.
From Sandcastle to Kennywood,
To Special events in every neighborhood,
Enjoy the sunshine
And eat outside at lunchtime.
Concerts and movies after dark,
Fireworks at PNC park.
There are Food festivals galore
Or you can go on a river tour,
Visit farmers markets on the Square,
Explore the Strip District with great food everywhere.
Explore parks, trails, and rivers,
Or watch city views while eating picnic dinners.
Pittsburgh is the place to be for summer fun.
The city offers something for everyone.
When chirping birds make your heart sing.
The first blooms of flowers
And many rain showers.
First green buds on the trees
And the happiness of a light breeze.
Trees are no longer bare
and the bright colors of spring are everywhere.
Spring brings sunshine
And people eating outside at lunchtime.
Baseball, running, hiking,
Enjoy all the fun that spring can bring.
Pittsburgh spring means healthy bike rides
And busy parks citywide.
There is always something to do,
Get outside and enjoy the awesome views.
Spring in our city,
It is always so pretty.
Chilly, windy days,
With dark gray skies appear.
I love to see sunshine
and blue skies.
Sometimes you bring weather that is a surprise.
Ever so light
Coat our pine trees
And shine in the night.
winter snow coming down
Creates a magical globe scene.
It is enchanting,
So peaceful and serene.
This song of winter
And it’s melody.
The joy of it all
Is basking in its glorious beauty.
The crunch of heavy snow
Under my cold feet
This Pittsburgh winter
Is sometimes not a treat.
The ice glistens
in the sunshine
It will become spring
When it is time.
There is always plenty to see and do.
Cooler temperatures and shorter days
Are perfect for pumpkin picking or enjoying a corn maze.
It is a perfect time to explore a pumpkin or apple fest
All of the activities will leave you very impressed.
Red, orange, and yellow leaves
Are beautiful on the trees.
Enjoy fall foliage at its peak
And explore a different part of the city every week.
Football and hockey season
We love fall in Pittsburgh for so many reasons.
Investigate Haunted houses, enjoy fright nights,
And explore the scary sights.
Other events like Doors Open Pittsburgh are a must
See inside cool buildings like the Union Trust.
Late fall brings Light up Night downtown
And market square Holiday shops around.
Enjoying all the interesting activities is a pleasure,
For fall in Pittsburgh is a treasure.
