Poetry Tips: The Spring Fever Blues

It’s getting warmer and more beautiful by the day, and if you are like me, you’re feeling trapped at your desk wishing you could be outside doing anything else instead. Whether you are a student or an employee stuck inside, a truck driver stuck delivering packages, or any job where you find yourself gazing longingly at the outside world’s beautiful sunny weather I urge you to write a Trapped By The Spring Fever Blues type of poem. You can use a catchy refrain through a repeating line or stanza, you can lament the stuffy wardrobe you’re forced to wear when you’d rather be in your shorts and t-shirt outside, anything you wish for while “trapped” in your position.

May the muse be with you, thanks for dropping in…

Funny you should mention feeling trapped because today I am a substitute algebra teacher giving 8th graders (the worst kind) their final exam. It is their next-to-last day of school and they are feeling rather trapped, too. The only thing worse I can think of is having to take that awful exam.

Yes, I agree, I'll take a normal 8 hour drudgery workday over school exams anytime!
