Coming from New England, USA, spring is never really spring! The bluebirds are back and so are the robins. They are a sure sign of spring, are they not?
The weather is getting a little warmer from the 30’s to the 40’s and 50’s. But I don’t dare get too comfortable because we are used to having a spring snowstorm. In the meantime I will enjoy a little more sunshine and longer days. After the rough winter we have had we really need a little warmth and some sunny days!
Please let me share with you my poem about spring.
What does spring mean to me?
It is an awakening of nature to be all that it can be.
The ground lays dormant all through the winter weather so cold.
And down under the ground grows the roots of new grass we are told.
At the first sign of warm weather the crocuses will pop through opening their faces to the bright sun and sky so blue.
The trees will soon send out their lifeblood from their roots.
And before our very eyes can detect new buds will then shoot.
Soon the birds and bees have arrived
to explore after a cold winter that they somehow survived.
There is a flutter of activity from every hole in the ground
as the chipmunks and groundhogs and other rodents stick their heads out for a look around.
It makes me feel alive once again
and know that it is time, my friends
for cleaning and carting away
all the things that clutter the house and the yard this fine spring day.
Just as nature prepares ahead for the mild weather days,
we should get ready to give thanks for yet another lovely spring
God has sent our way.
Thank you for stopping by. Hope you all have a lovely day!
Your support is appreciated! Come back again real soon for more news of my new children’s book and other tidbits.
