The Sweetest Awakening.

Updated on April 6, 2010

 

The Awakening.

 

Praise the earth now a Goddess,
whose emerged from her bed,
fresh from long hibernation
daffodils crown her head.

In her emerald robes,
through my back fields she warms,
winter snows into puddles.
all of nature conforms.

Her tulips curve graceful,
in scarlet reds like a kiss,
Spring's perfume fills soft breezes,
with an air of sweet bliss.

She is fickle and often
leaves her work incomplete
when the old man of winter,
will not bend to defeat.

But she always prevails,
with a dandelion smile,
spreading beauty and hope,
she'll dance on for awhile.

Till the child who is Summer,
finds its birth in her arms,
springing warm from her beauty
to inherits her charms.

Then Spring takes a hiatus,
to some far distant place,
where the cold winds are blasting,
weary smiles from each face.

Summer's child grows and prospers,
till she's schooled in the Fall,
then in colors they'll tumble,
under Winters' first squall.
