The Granite State's Spring

February 18, 1992|By Lawrence Freeny

Granite boulders shear and rumble,

Stirred by muddied snow to tumble.

Spring brings also THAT. What is it?

The Windy Sweeps political visit.

Farewell, Doug, not known so well;

Paul, Tom and Bill stayed quite a spell;

They, speaking on with Jerry

and Kerrey,

Made us long for "Give 'em hell Harry."

When Dave and Pat came on real loud,

George himself filled out the crowd.

We'll vote our say, now that's

for certain.

But, heck, there is no granite curtain:

Snowbirds, leafers, summerfolk,

come on --

It's best when politicking's gone!
