Aspects Of Spring - Poem by Valerie Dohren

See the flowers softly blooming
All the trees, new leaves to bear
Nature's beauty thus unfurling
As we breathe the honeyed air

Early now the sun is rising
Spreading light across the ground
Birds are nesting in the branches
Hear them sing, the sweetest sound

Gone is winter's cloak of darkness
Farewell to that season's chill
Welcome now the warmth of Springtime -
Hail the saffroned daffodil

Lifeless grass begins to flourish
Coloured crocus grace the scene
Fallowed land is now new seeded
April showers - all is green

In sweet fields, new lambs are prancing
Up and down, in gay delight
Soft white fleeces bathed in sunshine
Such a splendid, beauteous sight

Young love blossoms in the arbours
Two entwined as clinging vine
Eyes that meet in warm enchantment
Lips as red as seasoned wine

Yellow chicks and eggs of chocolate
Easter bunnies - children smile
Happiness is all around you -
Take your time and stay awhile

    Still winter here but the promise of spring is everywhere.
    One more week of cold weather and I think winter will be done.
    And I am looking forward to your described spring. (Report) Reply
