Early Spring

*A Collaboration

The snow that shrinks in the glen and the wood 
Would gladly stay through the spring if it could.

While clouds have flown to free the sapphire sky, 
The liquid snow of winter tumbles by. 

It melts into puddles of liquid gold
As the sun's growing warmth exiles the cold.
The warming sun highlights the tips of trees, 
Inviting new growth, encouraging bees. 
The swaying daffodils are in full bloom, 
Yet others sleep in Mother Nature’s womb. 
Tiny green buds are peeking from the trees 
And big, white blossoms are soon to be seen!

The spring flowers raise their heads to the sun, 
Soon to be used for Easter bonnet fun.

*In the order they appear here, these seven couplets were written by: Craig Cornish, Isaiah Zerbst, Heather Ober, David Williams, Jack Horne, Andrea Dietrich, and Seren Roberts. Thanks for participating, guys! :)

    I almost envy your talent, but rather than being envious, I am always just inspired! :) This is another amazing poem, I can honestly say I have never read words from you that weren't absolutely amazing. And thank you so much for your kind words on my most recent poem, I still feel so insecure about it, but I think it is merely because it is so personal; I am glad you found it powerful, that is what makes me feel accomplished! Hugs to you, sweetheart :)

    This venture turned out better than I expected. Everyone followed the theme so well that I would not have known it was written by so many different people had I happened upon it. Of course I can see that Heather did an excellent job of arranging them to achieve this result. Great spring couplets everyone!
