Each Spring Takes Wing

The crocus first peers from beneath cold earth
Finding warm air and sunshine o’er the snow
Magnificent colors paint hearts with mirth
As in full swing lovers’ great passions grow

Most women associate love with spring
Though young men’s thoughts turn to baseball diamonds
While children fly kites that take gentle wing
As snowbirds return from tropic islands

How blessed we are to breathe that fresh air
One more spring in the calendar of life
When lilacs fill gardens with lavender flare
Vows uttered as man makes woman his wife

Their first child’s birth arrives the next April
Just months after grandma’s been laid to rest
Seasons like ages approach ever graceful
As robins watch offspring fly from the nest

For PD's "Spring" contest

    My congratulations, Carolyn! Wish you best of luck for Francine's contest! We are all longing for spring, but I guess that we have to wait here yet for at least four months. Have a look at my Facebook Pictures. There is also a drawing of crocuses and poem. Thank you for all you kind comments and wishes, my friend. Hope you'll be havin a great week!...Love, Gert
