One More Spring

There are many and many of springs I have seen.
How many more springs to be?
While the winter wind blows and I'm freezing my toes,
spring can't come too soon for me.
The first little snowbells are raising their heads,
so small but exceedingly bold,
each playing it's part, announcing spring's start
and bravely ignoring the cold.

Wee was the hummer come sipping today
at the feeder I'd filled to the brim.
He's an early scout for all flavors about.
I am glad I was ready for him.
Tree buds are swelling and early bulbs dwelling
and stirring in their winter beds.
For spring they are yearning and the sun's brighter burning
will fast make them bring out their heads.

The sights and the sounds and scents of springtime
are appealing to all of my senses.
New lambs are let out gamboling about.
They are barely contained by the fences.
I have lived through the winter and it seems there will be
at least one more springtime for me.
I will grab it and savor, thank God for the favor
that I'm here with one more spring to see.

    very nice Joyce. Makes me want to get out and rake my pine straw. Can't wait to see if our hummers come back.

    :) Definitely an uplifting one Joyce! Just trying to recall those who were here when I first joined PS; there aren't many left from back then. But I remembered you ;) I also came to remember how very few of us it seemed there was to comment back then! lol Hope you're doing well today Joyce. I regret removing my poems sometime back; I lost many wonderful comments.

    hey, this is very nice, Joyce. I have one for this contest but I just can't decide if it is actually a ballad or not. So hard with some of these forms to figure that part out. Hope you score high with this delightful poem.
