A Place Called Spring ............

The veil drops away from the icy
mood of winters hold
Like a woman changing her heart ..... in it's
place .....melting streams run cold

Like the unvarified promise of
new found love ....change is complete
Worrying not about the past
or winters painful defeat

Run....... run with the warming breezes
as in the innocence of youth
Not worrying of consequences.....nor the
difference of lies from truth

Run ....run just for all the pleasure in
the warmth of drying sun
Through meadows and the pine
forests till springs gift is won

Isn't this the time of year when new loves
are born too
Or old loves thought dying
are remade into new

Or me like the hawk screaching high
in the uplifting warm breeze
In the solitude of new spring.......
happy to be alive and free


Welcome everyone....... to the season of spring , no matter where you are , some further along than others , but all of us have the promise of  a new season , a new summer , a new love or a new life , no matter  where you are ....lift up your chin and feel the sun on your heart!  Be well all..........

I just love the way you write, no matter what you are writing about it sounds so peaceful and romantic. When I read it's almost like I'm there.

Oh, yes, it really is spring at last. All the snow has melted off, just in time for my mother's 90th birthday!

Lovely poem, oh yes, let's RUN!

Howdy ahorseback - A very nifty piece of writing, with the words painting the picture so well. You could hear the change by reading the lines - and making the season into "a place" got my interest-antennae flapping nicely, too. Thanks.

Gus :-)))

Maggie May , I had to go and look it up , Port Royal , has a very weird growing season warmer than most all of New England. And definately warmer than northern Vermont where I live. :-}
