Springtime Dreams. - Poem by Fay Slimm

Scooping up dropped wings of unused fantasy
I contest the rest of winter,
............................................. ....and let spring
Declare war on same dark hourlong days, rank with
Damp seashore mist,
........................while I imagine spring-things.

Kissed with woven threads
........................................of golden sun-shiny
Skies, vision has plants outgrowing their neighbours,
While trees, re-frocked in greeny hues,
............................................. ............. benignly
Spread lush re-growth around feeding flocks, braver
Imagery, out-running mind's hold,
............................................. ........benefits me.

Re-dressed in skimpy clothes, tanning pallid skin,
I close winter's door
............................to let spring in, freedom seen
Means shortest days gone,
....................................and as scheming begins.
Fancy's bud bursts and rehearses springtime dreams.

    I really like all the images and words and the choice of words. Very pleasing to read and worth rereading slowly to savor all the meaning. (Report) Reply
