Breath of Spring Air


Melting snow,
Cool breeze,
Crows diving in a row,
Return of the unfriendly bees,
Rainbow in the sky,
And the songs of the talkative parrot;
These are signs that Spring is around the corner.
Again, she has defeated Queen Winter,
With that incredible show in the parking lot.
She is now wearing the crown and three ostentatious rubies;
Oh my golly! She can also poise better than all of the beauties
Gathered during the Ms.Universe beauty pageant.


Sigh of Lent,
Palm Sunday,
Children at play,
Gardens decorated with confetti,
Humming birds flying high,
And the young grand-mother in bikini;
These are hints that the celebration
Will commence early this spring.
One duck is already being trailed by an offspring,
Meanwhile, the zebras are being chased by one starving lion,
Who can no longer run like a supersonic train.
Amidst all of that, somebody is going to have fun.

    Herb,
    I've already sent you the feedback on this poem. So I'll reproduce it here once again: ....'Now thats the National Geographic in action in the city! And to live all of this with every breath of Spring is priceless, considering the turmoil in today's world....' Well written friend.

    Cheers.
    Subroto

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,

Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
