Yep, those people at http://onestoppoetry.com/ are at it again."It is March, green, Spring, there are leprechauns running around with four leaf clovers gifting luck to every one. It is a time of new life, new love, rejuvenation. Now go and write it!"
Okay, Brian, you asked for it.
Small green spikes braving the chill
Thrusting further up until
The spiking leaves spread and show
The bud that nods its hello.
Snowdrop first shows its white head
Crocus follows where it’s lead
Daffodil, narcissus too,
Tulip and hyacinth blue.
White gives way to rainbow hues
And birds sing the joyful news
For Spring is back, her coming
Sets both heart and mind humming.
Big and blousy, small and neat
Every flower is a treat.
Cultivated or a weed
Each bursting forth from a seed.
Insects buzzing dizzily
Flit around so busily
While birds flit from bush to tree
Sorting where their nest will be.
From Winter’s dull grey and white
Life has burst forth overnight
Now touched by sun’s warming rays
Colours delight joyful gaze.
