In spring rain

 In spring rain
a pretty girl
 yawning.


by Emily Dickinson

Winter under cultivation

 Winter under cultivation
Is as arable as Spring.


by Yosa Buson

The end of spring

 The end of spring--
the poet is brooding
 about editors.


by Yosa Buson

Lighting one candle

 Lighting one candle
with another candle--
 spring evening.


by Kobayashi Issa

Face of the spring moon

 Face of the spring moon--
about twelve years old,
I'd say.


by Yosa Buson

The spring sea rising

 The spring sea rising
and falling, rising
 and falling all day.


by Matsuo Basho

First day of spring

 First day of spring--
I keep thinking about
 the end of autumn.


by Matsuo Basho

Spring rain

 Spring rain
leaking through the roof
 dripping from the wasps' nest.


by Yosa Buson

The willow leaves fallen

 The willow leaves fallen,
the spring gone dry,
 rocks here and there.


by Kobayashi Issa

Under the image of Buddha

 Under the image of Buddha
all these spring flowers
seem a little tiresome.


by William Morris

Spring

 Spring am I, too soft of heart
Much to speak ere I depart:
Ask the Summer-tide to prove
The abundance of my love.


by Wang Wei

Duckweed Pond

 Spring pond deep and wide

Time for the vessel’s return

Slow the duckweed flows together

Willows draw them apart again

Upon Prew His Maid

 In this little Urne is laid
Prewdence Baldwin (once my maid)
From whose happy spark here let
Spring the purple violet.


by Emily Dickinson

Upon a Lilac Sea

 Upon a Lilac Sea
To toss incessantly
His Plush Alarm
Who fleeing from the Spring
The Spring avenging fling
To Dooms of Balm


by Ogura Hyakunin Isshu

Koko Tenno

It is for thy sake
That I seek the fields in spring,
Gathering green herbs,
While my garment's hanging sleeves
Are with falling snow beflecked.


by Emily Dickinson

Spring comes on the World --

 Spring comes on the World --
I sight the Aprils --
Hueless to me until thou come
As, till the Bee
Blossoms stand negative,
Touched to Conditions
By a Hum.


by William Allingham

A Memory

 Four ducks on a pond,
A grass-bank beyond, 
A blue sky of spring, 
White clouds on the wing; 
What a little thing 
To remember for years- 
To remember with tears!


by Dimitris P Kraniotis

Rules and visions

 Life counts
the rules;
the sunset, their exceptions.
Rain drinks up the centuries; spring, our dreams.
The eagle sees the sunrays and youth, the visions.


by Emily Dickinson

Spring is the Period

 Spring is the Period
Express from God.
Among the other seasons Himself abide, But during March and April None stir abroad Without a cordial interview With God.


by Walter Savage Landor

Ianthe

 From you, Ianthe, little troubles pass
Like little ripples down a sunny river;
Your pleasures spring like daisies in the grass,
Cut down, and up again as blithe as ever.


by Mother Goose

Intery, Mintery


Intery, mintery, cutery corn,
Apple seed and apple thorn;
Wire, brier, limber-lock,
Five geese in a flock,
Sit and sing by a spring,
O-u-t, and in again.


by Wang Wei

Remembrance

 A red berry grows
in the south country --
The boughs are full of them
when spring arrives.
Gather some, I pray, and fill your pockets -- These are the best forget-me-knots!


by Marina Tsvetaeva

The Window

 In the sweet, Atlantic
Breathing of spring
My curtain's like a butterfly,
Huge, fluttering
Like a Hindu widow
To a pyre's golden blaze,
Like a drowsy Naiad
To past-window seas.


by Emily Dickinson

A little Madness in the Spring

 A little Madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King,
But God be with the Clown --
Who ponders this tremendous scene --
This whole Experiment of Green --
As if it were his own!


by Emily Dickinson

His little Hearse like Figure

 His little Hearse like Figure
Unto itself a Dirge
To a delusive Lilac
The vanity divulge
Of Industry and Morals
And every righteous thing
For the divine Perdition
Of Idleness and Spring --
