Default Many Birdies are leaving.

The high season will be ending.
And soon we will be sending.
The snowbirds back to the snow.

Lots of birds will be leaving,
And folks will be grieving.
For friends, with all feeling low.

We will miss them for certain
and find it a burden
to watch them all pack and to go.

We will miss the huge crowds
And the talking real loud
and the saving of chairs for the shows.

We will try to be cheerful
And not be too tearful
In thinking that they all gotta go.


So we'll tell them we miss them
and we'll hug and we'll kiss them
and try not to grin or to show

That when they are gone now
The lines won't be so long now.
and later for dinner we can go.

We'll find it consoling
that pickleball and bowling
We'll be first in line then to go.

We'll have space at the Publix
and the parking will be all fixed,
and shopping won't be so darn slow.

Our golf groups won't be booted,
And our driving not saluted
with interesting gestures and calls.

We will miss them all badly.
But maybe not ALL sadly.
And joyfully look for their return in the fall.

Just teasing you snowbirds. We love you and we will miss you.
We will just spread out a little while you're gone.

We miss our snowbird neighbors when they're gone for 5-6 months.

And I'll say it: clueless and aggressive driving does not suddenly disappear when they leave!

Beautiful tribute Grace. I also love the birdies in my neighborhood. I will miss them as well.

Personal Best Regards:
I've been dealing with snowbirds all of my life. I grew up on Key West (a true traffic nightmare as people drive on the Overseas Highway and realize how beautiful it is AT 10 mph) and I've lived in No. Fla. for 42 years. We Floridians appreciate the industry produced by our visitors but don't appreciate being told how to do things, how much we suck in Florida and the congestion created by them. I too will welcome their return but am grateful for the respite.

Beautifully done, Gracie!

The snowbirds spent a lot of money to help our local businesses and some are very delightful people.

I guess the "too crowded threads" will abate, for awhile.
