On The Edge Of Spring. - Poem by Geoffrey Fafard

It is spring here on the edge of the wilderness
and the night smells of
Wild watermelon wine
Winter has packed her sullen suitcase
She did not like the game
I wish, oh how I wish I had known you
When you were a child in spring
And I was was on the edge of an adventure
With the taunt of summer in front of me
The wolves of winter asleep in memory
And the wild watermelon wine
that perfumes the air
On nights like this
Would hurry us along
the lanes and pathways
Onwards friends together
Laughing hand in hand
Hurry, hurry before the wine
Is finished.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Memories tropical, warm wilderness close at hand. An adventure around every corner surely?

    I have believed this to be about ushering spring, I think most living creatures love spring. Thanks for sharing. Please review my poem 'Deer Hunter' (Report) Reply

    this is not totally clear to me but it was much more entertaining than the poetry i read of several other poets found at 'who is online'. i wish you used punctuation to denote sentences. and it seems haphazard how you decide in which lines to capitalize the first word.
    i especially enjoyed these lines:

    And the wild watermelon wine
    that perfumes the air
    On nights like this
    Would hurry us along
    the lanes and pathways thanks for sharing. bri :) (Report) Reply
