Spring Comes

Spirit of Spring
Spirit of Spring
Greening leaves take on new shapes
Greening leaves take on new shapes
a chill leaving in a warming breeze.
a chill leaving in a warming breeze.
wild creatures stir from their beds.
wild creatures stir from their beds.
sleepy heads raise their petals to the sunlight.
sleepy heads raise their petals to the sunlight.

Salutations to the Spring




Spring comes,

a sleeping princess turns, and awakens.

The winds of change are coming,

As loosened ice sleeves, are shaken.



First buds appear on once barren limbs,

Birds grow restless and sing.

The flower's long dormant bulbs,

Hear the summoning song of Spring.



The chilling breezes give way to warming currents,

The cozy meadow stirs, and stretches its arms.

Flowering blooms pop out by the dozens,

A lively display of rainbow's charms.



I. in my cap and warm jacket, am secure,

As I light my tobacco filled pipe, in pensive repose.

Thoughts of yesterdays and returning hopes,

Wondering if the right path, I chose.



Cooling nights,

Moon beams sparkling, in their dance.

A light ripple upon the lake,

Bright stars twinkling, across the wide expanse.

That is exactly what I love about Spring, though it is not the same as it was when I was young since I now live in warmer weather. But, I do remember eagerly waiting for those signs of spring. I loved it when the leaves and flowers began to timidly pop out!

I intended to write "salutation to the season." Edit button didn't work.

perfectly said, and when the dawn renews, it is time to be back out there once again.
