Summary: Spring brings with it renewal of many things

Font Size

Printable Version
Print Double spaced

The sun  shines warm upon the earth;
     The clouds send lots of rain;
Plants burst through the damp spring soil:
      It’s renewal time again.
Birds are dashing here and there
     And it’s so very plain
That when a million nests are built
      It’s renewal time again.
Buds burst forth upon the trees;
     The farmers plant their grain
And with warming sun and gentle rain
      It’s renewal time again.
We humans smile much more in spring
      And forget our aches and pain
For Easter’s here; then summer-time:
       Renewal time’s here again!

Hi Josie, i'm afraid this is still in the archive and not in the group, did you click on Flash Poetry during the uploading? if not it will be uploaded, but just go generally to the site, and not any one group.

Hi Josie, I love how you have captured the key events and the essence of Spring in this poem. The poem has a natural fluidity to it that is very hard to achieve, so well done! I look forward to reading more of your work.

Ah well, I think I will leave it here.  It's difficult to get around this site as a newbie.  Thank you.

Ok. I hope my directions were of some help, i know this site can get you in a bit of a muddle at first. I will consider it part of the challenge, even if its not in the group :)
The poem really captures the sense of change and perfectly evokes a sense of renewal, I like that you've caught the sense of it as a cycle, a constant process, that "we humans" need.
Thanks for the contribution :)

I'm sorry I didn't comment before, I didn't know it was here.

Well it's a bit chilly up here in the North today but this is certainly a bit of spring.
