       Spring is a magical time.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    Snow abates, the frost retreating
    Winter time now seems so fleeting
    Birds return, with young lambs bleating
    Now Spring is on its way

    The sun, it climbs to heights of old
    Days get longer, nights less cold
    Evening shadows laced with gold
    Now Spring is on its way

    Sap is rising, trees awake
    Fish are spawning in the lake
    Salmon, herring cod and hake
    Now Spring is on its way

    Bluebells, crocus, daises growing
    Farmers ploughing, busy sowing
    The Western wind is set for blowing
    Now Spring is on its way

    Stars appear and twinkle bright
    Oceans glisten in the night
    Ebb and flow with all their might
    Now spring is on its way

    Romance blooms and grows on high
    Couples kiss and touch the sky
    Praying love won’t pass them by
    Now Spring is on its way

       I agree with everone here.......this poem really is a great one.............

    Well thought out and written with excellent meter .....there sure was a 'spring' in each step of the poem.

    The poem flows very beautifully and you have penned down so many of the blessings that nature bestows on us.......during the advent of spring ( in this poem ).

    I liked these verses :

    "Stars appear and twinkle bright
    Oceans glisten in the night
    Ebb and flow with all their might
    Now spring is on its way" ;

    "Romance blooms and grows on high
    Couples kiss and touch the sky
    Praying love won’t pass them by
    Now Spring is on its way"

    But to come to think of it, I nearly change my mind when I read the other verses once more..............each one is great.

    Good job.

      This poem is wonderful praise of Spring, and all it's hopeful promises of new life.
    Another wonderful work, Frank!

      As you may guess, I cannot wait until those warm days of spring grace us with their presence. Your poem is a delight to read and the repeated line worked very well as an emphasis. This one goes to my favorites! :-) Sharon

      I love it, as usual, Frank. :)

    Nothing bad to say. Keep up the good work, as you always do!

      This poem has the mood of the almost breathless anticipation of Spring after enduring the agony of a long, cold, and grey winter! It literally "sings" with the joy of anticipation, and the mood of Spring!

    I love this:

    "Romance blooms and grows on high
    Couples kiss and touch the sky
    Praying love won’t pass them by
    Now Spring is on its way"

    I can remember some blushing farm girls whose kisses took me right through the clouds and beyond! *sigh*

    You have a genius for writing, and for telling a rhyming story! I enjoyed this very much!
