Spring's End (poems about Spring)

It's Spring Again

Each year when Winter ends and Spring comes around again, it is as though nature comes alive again. Flowers begin to bloom anew, bird song fills your ears, butterflies and bees are doing their thing, and romance is in the air. I never cease to marvel at the wonders and beauty of nature in all its forms. It all seems to be over too quickly. I hope you enjoy these poems I wrote as a tribute to my favourite season.

Spring Quotes

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!" ~Robin Williams


Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer. ~Geoffrey B. Charlesworth


Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. ~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke


It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain

Spring's End

by John Hansen © 2014

Sheep are baa-ing in the field

The little lambs are bleating.

Bird song fills the fresh Spring air

And dull grey skies are fleeting.


This season is for lovers

And romance is all around.

Flowers are blooming brightly

And new seeds are in the ground.


Days still warm, but not too hot

Summer days are on the way.

Now's the time to be outdoors

And enjoy each bright spring day.


Springing!

by John Hansen © 2014


It was a bright Spring day

And with a spring in my step,

Though I'm no spring chicken,

I waded in the cool mountain spring,

Then after drinking a bottle of 'Deep Spring' water

I had the spring replaced in my sofa,

So I could watch Jerry Springer

While looking forward to spring lamb for dinner.

Natural Beauty

by John Hansen (c) 2015


Surveying nature's beauty,

Peering all around

Relishing the moment

I savour every sound.

Never underestimating

God's gifts that abound.

So lovely ...yes, spring is all of that, and at this very moment I am enjoying listening to the birds sing all around my backyard. Spring is my favorite time of year and then Fall. Everything seems to be springing forth new life. I love your photos and imagery here, so beautiful and the multi-colored sheep are stunning!

It is going to be a beautiful day of celebration for my family as we gather together on this lovely spring day to enjoy my granddaughter who has turned four.

So strange, when I clicked on the video, it said not available in my country? I see others from my country commenting on the video. I am sure it is beautiful.

Up and more, tweeting, pinning and sharing

Blessings

Have a great day Faith, and I wish your granddaughter a great birthday. It was my grandson's first birthday last Saturday and we went to his party. Pity about the video, yes Eric and Kim apparently got it ok. Thank you for the vote, pin, tweet and share anyway. blessings back.

I enjoyed your mixture of profound and clever, Jodah. The first poem is absolutely beautiful while the second makes silly use of the various definitions of spring. Well done!

Jodah, your pictures are phenomenal, and I love the colored sheep!

Thank you for this terrific inspiration! I could visualize it all. Like Faith Reaper, I could not view the video either...not available in our country!

I could also visualize all you wrote. I especially love the cherry blossoms at the beginning. Thank you so much. Blessings, Sparklea :)

I liked the "Jerry Springer" addition. You are always good for some humor. I am going to go spring into action and plant some petunias, at least that is what I tell myself.

Thanks Bill glad you finally got some Spring, and that this gave you a smile :) . Take care.

Plant some petunias for me Flourish, I love those old fashion favourite flowers. Haha, the Jerry Springer line came to me as an afterthought. I published, then quickly edited again and added it. Glad you liked it. Thanks.

What delightful poems! I'm here in Brittany, France, enjoying their Springtime. It's a little windy with the occasional shower but it's lovely and so many flowers and trees are blooming. I love the Spring because it's all so fresh and optimistic and your poems bring out all those feelings.

The photos and illustrations are superb!

This has definitely put a spring in my step. Ann

Spring is definitely for me, it heralds light nights, and yes, the lambs, and a new refreshing green countryside. Down here it's getting dark and chilly and i'm getting decidedly grumpy. Lovely reminder of spring to come.

You are right travmaj, it is a wonderful season. Thanks for reading and your kind comment.

Yeah jodah , 'Springs'End" carries life's classic hope and its irrepressible power; while in "Spring" you do exhibit modern "face" of the season. ( Let me thing about.)

Voted interesting.

I now have a spring in my step, looking forward to this much awaited season. This past winter was sooo long for us, John. What a pleasure reading these lovely, spiritedly clever poems with just the right touches and feel of spring. (By the way, the video reads, “not available in your country.”)


Jodah profile image

Jodah 2 years ago from Queensland Australia Author

Thank you for that nice comment Genna. I bet you have been looking forward to Spring. I will see if I can find another version of the video.

Ok, everyone who was disappointed with the video not working in your country. I have replaced it with a different version. Hope it works.

Jodah: Although my allergies really give me a beating in the springtime, I really enjoyed both poems. I loved the descriptive words you chose.

Jodah, this was humorous, I have never seen such colorful sheep. Spring used to be one of my favorite seasons unfortunately the tornadoes are starting early this year, so I chose fall. It was two good verses for when you have nice Spring days. I will have to come back later to pin it, Pinterest is slow this morning. I voted it up.
