Outbursts of colours – 50 shades of green
All of them so fresh and full of energy
Fields of rich brown ready to be ploughed
A seedbed ready to give new life
White and pink cherry trees – patches on
Background releasing intoxicating scent
Birds chirping their lungs away
A heavenly symphony for dancing feet
Bright blue sky making one
Dream of distant places – new journeys
Beg to be taken, one can’t stand still
Fluffy milky clouds – all the beasts
To be imagined chasing each other
Spring showers making everything fresh
Coming and going in a split of a second
Spring is here, kick start to the year.
Snowdrops sadly gone to ground
Daffodils perform their final showdown.
Bluebells next take to the stage
Amongst trees waking from winters sleep
Blossom bursting forth everywhere
See it billowing gently in the air,
Cattle munch on jewelled dew laden grass,
Farmers early risers, performing their tasks.
Ewes roam on hillside,their bellies rounded and fat,
Lambs leap and bounce like scalded cats.
Mornings sharp, senses are roused,
Birds singing, make delightful sounds.
Breath of freshness evident all around,
Suns entrance dramatic from the ground.
Majestic, silent omits no sound,
Gently wakes up villages, cities and towns.
Grey blue tones followed by a blinding light,
Celestial display of her awesome might.
Gentle folk begin to rise,
Rubbing sleep gently from their eyes.
Ready to face another day,
While the suns up to ‘make hay’.
Tomorrow will bring another Spring day,
It’s brilliance and beauty as yesterday.
Just be happy with what you’ve got,
Just be free and laugh a lot.
Just enjoy life passionately,
Just devour it just like me.
Just be there as a friend,
Just don’t judge, read to the end.
Just be there with tender care,
Just make sure your always there.
Just be what ever you want to be.
Just be a little crazy, like me……..
“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke
do you like spring as much as we do? Write about it, express it, share it – we can’t wait!
