Hurry Hurry Spring


Is it spring yet
pestered the daffodils
in shades of yellow delight.

Not yet sighed the crocus
but what a sight you make
faces so bold and bright.

Is it spring
Whispered new grasses
in pale shades of green

Seems each year like
waking to a dream
smelling so clean.

Is it spring
Yelled each impatient tree
I am beginning to bud happily.

Be patient spring whispered
our time will come
spring is a special time for laughter and fun.

I'll let you know just when
So hush now!
In a few more days, spring will have sprung!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
