Spring’s Harbinger

Spring’s come with bird song, chirped all morning long
White, purple petals of harbinger blooms
Coaxes crocuses, daffodils to throng
Transforms frozen sheets with colorful fumes
Flee winter, take your snow and gray days, go
Melt your sparkling stalactites, stalagmites
Take your ice and go, let your waters flow
Bid goodbye as we welcome spring’s delights
Make way for spring, wake you buds to new life
Let our soul sing with the chirping bluebirds
Their song rings in meadows where beds wildlife
Crafts flower’d scene defying rule of thirds.
The sweeping vista invites me to rest.
Reminds my soul to rest, yes, I am blessed.

  1. Another marvelous collaboration–I’m awed by anyone who can do sonnets, and more so by 2 working on one together, MY MY!!! I’m almost afraid to choose a favorite bit, lest either of you feel slighted…but I’m quite captured by “take your ice and go”–and of course, the final line of rest and blessing 🙂 It’s a reminder most of us need frequently 🙂

  2. “Take your ice and go, let your waters flow
    Bid goodbye as we welcome spring’s delights”
    What fantastic lines! And Rosema, Bravo, doesn’t feel like your first attempt at a sonnet.

      1. Today it might climb up to fifty. At least the sun is out. I’m at “a” place is what I meant to write. I’ve either got to drink less caffeine or more. I hope your day is going (or has gone) splendidly.
