A Spring Soliloquy

New grass will wave in a crisp morning breeze
White buds will blur our orchard lanes again
Clouds will be dancing over the blue horizon
And earth will feel the tiny feet of rain

Streams will wash their pebbles bright and clean
Each shaken fern will yield a twinkling shower
Meadowlarks will share a sweet soliloquy
And sun-drenched lilacs will be glad with flower

The wide lift of fresh air and skies of blue
Will glimmer between each leafy bough of green
I will walk into the woods, ushered by a redwing's flute
I will bask in the sunshine, and listen to the song of spring

New born lambs will suckle in the dew
A fragrant petal from the apple tree
Will rest upon my cheek, and I will feel the touch of spring
And know a sense of peace, throughout the whole of me

*                   *                      *                            *

    carrie, I believe you utilized nearly all the senses in your imagery of spring: "feel the tiny feet of rain; "lilacs will be glad with flower"; "redwing's flute"; "fragrant petal from the apple tree"; lots of sight and action too. I think all I missed was something to taste. Marvelous. LUv, Andrea
