Spring is near

The last icy tremor of your wintry winds
Fizzling through the choked air
Leave your thinning threads
In the oncoming fairyland of Spring.

Welcome, welcome, first lady of creation
Your sweet smelling grass sheds tears of dew
Tears of elation as morning peeps
Your foetal clouds bathe us in your re-birth
As winter threads its' skeleton hand 
With its' new love Spring
And with that a new energy is born.

Song and lilacs greet the dawn
Early birds furrage for the nesting days
Through paths of bluebells they ferry twigs
Celebrating the beginning of morning light.
Fresh air exhales baby crocus buds yonder
While the swelling sun in giant splendour
Can no longer conceal the first flush of Spring.

The world is awakened by its' might arrival
The dance of the daffodils is about to begin.

For Francine Roberts competition  Bring on Spring

    Hi Deirdre. Thanks for the visit. no it wasn't today. yesterday a friend rang me to ask if they could read a bit of my prose at a 'bite and recite ' evening. Delighted to be asked so reread the piece all about the a boat trip on the Suir last year. That led to the poem. This is amazing. In winter we all look forward to spring. You have brought it on early with this fine write. Best of luck in the contest. Eamon
