Still Springtime.... - Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

This morn I shuffle gently
the soft silken curtains
and I see instantly Spring passing
butterflies frolic
honey bees are buzzing with joy
bees hover near the upstreaming mind
of the poetess
at this hour so much loveliness

is it really spring
or just some blackbirds chirping?
but here people oft say
one swallow does not make a summer yet
but we are now still in spring
and so many blackbirds are singing

it IS still spring
i haven´t seen one swallow yet
your knowledge ´bout birds is bad
do you know the swallow, i´m doubting
that sounds irritating, darling!

on this spring´s earliest morning
the blackbirds are singing
my heart leaps up and started humming
so much glee and gladness passing
through the upstreaming mind of the poetess
at this hour so much beauty and loveliness
i´m amazed at so much Godliness

Amazed at so much God´s Loveliness....
