Spring's Parade


                                             
                                                   


                                                    The sun arose this morning
                                                    against a clear, blue sky
                                                    The birds sing a new song
                                                    a sign that spring is nigh

                                                    Trees awaken from their sleep
                                                    and long winter's rest
                                                    Tulips raise their little heads
                                                    all fancy, frilly and dressed

                                                    Meadows are green and lush
                                                    sparkling with morning dew
                                                    Daffodils join the parade
                                                    of spring's march brand new

                                                    Dogwoods will soon reign
                                                    in snow covered bloom
                                                    Honeysuckle will cast a spell
                                                    of sweet, fragrant perfume

                                                    A fresh and welcome breeze
                                                    spring is such a thrill
                                                    Winter's last whimsical stroll
                                                     bows down to kneel

Yep, tomorrow is the first day of spring on the calender that is. I know everyone feels the same as me, bring it on. This has been one of the roughest winters we've had in many years and it just doesn't want to let up. As my daddy used to say. "It's gonna be a late spring". Hang in there folks it won't be long now, I hope.

  1. It feels like spring around here already, Susie. What a lovely poem. Did you take the picture of the birds? Their blue feathers are so vibrant and pretty. Bird watching is one of my favorite things to do.

    Happy Spring, Susie.

    love,

  2. This poem is filled with beautiful word pictures! And although spring starts without the redbud blooms, and the green grass, we know God set the seasons for us, and it will come.

    Are you feeling better, Susie?

  6. So far our only sign of spring are daffodils and robins. I am so anxious for the rest to follow.

  8. Well, Susie, if a poem could make it get there any faster - this one would surely do it! It is just a perfect picture of Spring.

  9. Spring is inevitable, even if it does take longer than most of us would like. If the Spring Azure has anything to say about it, we are in the clear!
