Hymn To Spring - Poem by Pete Crowther

Wild roses bloom in May
When trees are freshly green
And everything is bright and clean
In a new-made world’s first day.

Cold winter now is far away,
It seems a distant dream
That somehow was not meant to stay
And faded from the scene.

Cast off your cares, come let us play
Discarding dull routine,
We’ll dance a jig upon the green —
Sweet spring has come today,
And I’m the king of the Milky Way
And you shall be my queen.

    I know just how you feel. I loved the poem, especially the last stanza. I feel like dancing a jig right now, for I've just defended me graduation paper. Another 2 weeks and I'll get my Master of Arts! Dancing Julia :) (Report) Reply

    Pete, This is a beautiful one. Spring seems everyone's favourite season, and the world seems so joyful and alive in Spring.
