Well, hello again. Hope you liked Sweetie's blog last week. It was sweet. Not bad for a little floof.
Actually, I think it was pretty good.
Well, finally we have had a week of warmer weather. Thus the inspiration to create more Spring poetry. I tell you, this spring has been more like winter here... and we are so in need of warmth and sunshine. So, in honour of Spring and everything that brings to mind... a little poem or two. Let's share them here with you and maybe we can encourage Spring to stay if we all think of Spring, gardening, and all that they entail. What do you say?
Late April 2018
The snow is melting quicker now
Revealing greens peeking low;
Amongst the ice and mud they peek.
It is the warmth of sun they seek.
Blue amongst the grass I see
Grape Hyacinths, an early bee
Greet morning sun, dispelling gloom.
Such glorious colour, delightful hum.
Snowdrops so white as buds do ope’
Show promise of spring. It gives me hope
For April’s upon us warm and bold.
Relinquish, Winter! Release your hold!
‘Tis time to rest for another year
You’ll descend on us soon enough I fear
For now head off to places far
Give us a chance to smell the flower.
Spring at last
The leaf it buds upon the tree
It makes me hum; I feel such glee
That snow is spent; now grasses grow
Amid the flowers, a verdant show.
Outdoors I’ll be in spirit, though
For in big city we cats don’t go
Beyond the sill and window pane
It isn’t safe so we home remain.
But there we listen with deep intent
To birds asinging. We are content
To watch them soar as they go past
Delighting in their joy. Spring, at last!
