Poet’s Corner: Spring in Mink Meadows


The grass is not green and the snow is still here,

But the click of the club tells me spring is near.

They hurry on by across the cold ground,

So happy, so happy to play a golf round.

Their arms may be aching, their feet may be cold,

But who is not happy with a golf club to hold?

The greens are bumpy, the fairways are rough.

These men are golfers and that means they’re tough.
