An English Spring Ramble

Spring is here in every new budding leaf
that flourishes beneath
this vast expansive sky of baby blue.
Wild pink cherry in blossom by the road
covers soft yellow daffodils on show,
fav’rite colours in a nursery hue.

Push’d into this expectant painted world
first lambs, tails unfurled
wobble under udders in fields of green.
Along hedgerows where I slowly amble,
deep within the ancient knotted bramble
Tree Sparrows flitter and twitter unseen.

Walking with my eyes and heart wide open
silent words unspoken,
the wayside has its own story to tell.
The wild birds’ spring symphony holds me
standing here beneath the sunlit cherry
looking through branches at a clear blue sky.

    Spring is a wonderful time of year, isn't it. Gives ample subject matter to write about. You've done really well with this form. You capture the beauty and wonder of all that is Spring.

    Interesting what you've done with the form. I especially like how you've added the six syllable line. The first line of the third verse has one too many syllables, perhaps if you said "walking with eyes" and got rid of the "my." also your six syllable line in that verse has one too many syllables, so perhaps it could be "no single word spoken." Just some thoughts. Hugs, Catie :)

    Thank you so much for your constructive comment. I have as you suggested removed one 'my' from the first line of the third verse and altered the seven syllable error to six. I did not use your suggestion exactly, though I am undecided as to whether or not my choice is any better. I would be grateful if you could maybe drop by again and let me know your thoughts. Thank you.

    Perhaps it holds the chance for new opprotunities? Only time will tell. Great write =)
