Batters up…..the tingles start and now we know its spring
All the winter woes are gone and baseball fever sings
Seats are chosen --lucky fans will sit where they can see
Easy chairs for some are best--- the price of them is free
Bull pens hold the players and the feelings there run high
As the batter taps the plate he glances at the sky
Like somewhere there is a baseball god who’ll help him out
Luckily he smacks a low ball—it’s a home run and a shout

Soft sun and gentle rain
Penetrate earth’s mantle
Rejuvenating life, long dormant
In winter’s grasp;
Nature wakes and a new
Generation of life begins.

Spring Summer Autumn Winter Acrostic Poetry.
Seeking political office is getting hard,
Party politics needs more vigor in this regard:
Republicans must try more to deliver their views
In order to organize the people, without any excuse;
Nowadays, Democrats are getting stronger, after
Gaining control of the White House and the Senate altogether.
Some people think, and it's a true fact, that
Unless Republicans try to review their policy tact,
Many of their seats will be lost in congress,
Mainly some seats in the Senate, also some of the seats they control
Especially in the House: they will have to review and
Revise their conservative norms, regarding Immigration Reforms.
America needs a strong leader
Under the present day economic conditions
To lower the country's debt of over 14 trillions dollars:
Until and unless we try to cut down spending and
Most of us try to reduce excessive wastes,
No amount of effort will save the country from disaster.
We the people think that
In this country it was
Never the right thing,
To increase excessive spending,
Even if we could afford to spend it.
Responsibility lies in all of us to reduce the nation's debt.

Surrepitiously beginning beneath the icy crust
Perforatting green swords, minute, prick toward the sun,
Ravenously eager to spread Spring's floral dawn.
In open view nature copulates, animal and flower,
Naive, the way it is in Paradise.
God's glory gestures grace renewed to all the earth.

Sweet scented blossom
Perfume fills the air
Rejuvenating the world with colour
Irises wave in the wind like purple flags
New life everywhere
Get out and enjoy the spring sunshine!

Melting snows begin to fade
As a newborn season arrives,
Refreshing our lives grown dull.
Cradled in green budding leaves,
Hushed by the winds of spring.

Stunningly dressed, stirring in her crib, spring awakens.
Plants and animals ready for the princesses arrival.
Rolling waves of aviators, nippers, roamers scurry all.
In turn blooming blossoms, blossoming blooms flavor froth the air.
Nourishing rays, falling rains provide the infant sustenance.
Gathered, gleeful the first born takes her seasoned throne.

Spring time begins to lurk as winter snow melts
Pastel flowers peer from their cover
Rapidly trying to make an appearance
Inching their way, hoping winter is over.
Nests begin to form and birds burst into song
Green grass grows and swishes in the wind
Time springs forward, losing that precious hour,
Individuals impatient for longer brighter days, as
Moments hastily pass by, making heads spin
Ending in an instant much to their chagrin... Was that Spring?

She survives through the winter, but she seeks no favors
Peeking through the green
Rain is her friend, she comes in the spring
Inviting the sunshine, to smile on her face
Nothing can rival, her bright golden grace
Gladness she brings, to each vibrant place
Of her bright yellow swirls
Reaches the sunshine when the thaw breaks
Subdued and dormant, she suddenly wakes
Yawning and stretching...she raises her head
To suddenly blossom, and stirs in her bed
Her sovereign beauty delights everyone
In faithful gold flowers...under the sun
A treasure of gold at the first sign of spring

Spring signals farm melodies and agile new calves
Exploring fresh life, its’ twist and its’ paths
Pastures now released from the grip of despair
Tumultuous weather so still pays to beware.
Emerging buds finally break into bloom
Magnificent contrast to a winter of gloom
Bees buzzing busily in search of their fare
Essence of fragrances tickling the air
Roots of the future ignoring their stupor.

Awakening from a frozen slumber, nature erupts in a
Plethora of colors, scents and sounds.
Rainy days come and go and sometimes produce a rainbow to
Ignite our fancy after winter's drab gray.
Life is renewed as the warmth of Spring replaces the nagging cold.

ACROSTIC FOR SPRING FLOWERS
( DAFFODILS )
Don’t give another thought to old winter’s cold.
April has arrived and the sun is in his heavenly arena,
Filling all the buds with the growing strength of
Flowers that are just begging to be the centre of
Ornamental displays in parks somewhere, and are also
Delighted to become a pick-me-up for those tired
Ice-weary people too winter-exhausted to say, “ I
Like your bonnet” or “How sweet it is” just to fill
Someone’s day with pleasant springtime wishes .
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The word ‘daffodils’ is formed from the
first letter of each line, and ALSO by the last letter of each line.

At this time of the year spring
prevails and the tulips grow
resplendent, as rich colors
infiltrate patches of white,
like jewels set in the snow.

S So swiftly as sunlight pierces a cloudy day, lies the
P Promise that day from night is born
R Resting gently, the golden ray on startled cheek
I Is like a feather from a singing lark
N No lovely thing from Him is ever lost
G Giving faith in tomorrow's renewal, with reverant intent
F For beauty hidden from our sight
A A little while, returns ....and then....
I It lifts with wings and flutters on
T The humble prayer of Easter is not in vain
H His proof of life everlasting, arrives in every spring

Seedlings are sprouting in my pot
Perched up high in a perfect spot
Raindrops gently falling, from the sky
Into the pot that is so dry
New life this soft rain has brought
Giving liquid to plants forgot
Suddenly the sky turns pitch black
Heeding warning, spring storms attack
Ominous clouds are all around
Wish tornadoes wouldn't hit the ground
Every spring we must be aware
Rain storms fury we must prepare
Spingtime showers are everywhere

Mingled highs and lows from the weather
All around earth gives forth flowers
Radiant sun awakens and birds gather
Constant change as each tree grows higher
Hopeful season of spring; spirit towers
Majestic springtime sunrises
Amorous hidden feelings spring forth
Rapturous aroma surprises
Captivating senses of mirth
Heavenly days linger, henceforth?
Magic moments float into night's prizes
Attentive doting companion
Rehearses love's verse excited
Completely engulfed unabandoned
Hauting thoughts float like jasmine

Ardently, she sweeps away weary winter,
Preening her plumage, the year's infant peacock;
Rivers swell and rise, heavy life breasts.
Incandescent, she fires earth's darkness, sparking spring's fuse,
Liberating ice-encapsulated souls, warmth starved.

Spring is a season that blesses us with beginnings
Praise to the heavenly father, God
Rise early with the morning sunrise
Islands of Nature blossoming slowly
Narcissus and lilies blooming
Gardens flourishing everywhere
Sounds of nature's conversation
Unbelievably unique and well-defined
Near and distant
Symphonic with the ability to bless us
Excellent days and nights
The warmth of a season's blessing

Sunshine on a rainy day
Perfect showers that cleanse the sidewalks
Raindrops that make delightful sounds
I am at home looking through the window
New and refreshing the air
Good weather comes again to be
Really dangerous sometimes,
Accepted as traditionally enhancing
I walk carefully, perhaps I stay at my apartment
Now the beautiful sunshine comes, blessing us

Around the corner, the sun will show its new face after A
Well earned time of having endured through the cold of Winter.
Anticipation is felt as nature burgeons and animals wake Anew
Keenly sensing the coming of spring with all its love felt in its Kaleidoscopic
Emergence of colors everywhere and its fragrances brought by the Elements.
Nature at its youth, feeling the excitement throughout, that we all Naturally
Instinctively experience rebirth within the fiber of our hearts; yet still Intimidated,
Not having yet forgotten the frozen breath of the dying icy season. But Now
Gratitude moves into the soul from the lessons learned, and we thank God.
Sweetly, we turn our eyes to the heavens above for the blessing of its Smile
Pleasantly blowing to us in fragrant love with the breezes and the waters, Preparing
Rebirth of nature, and the birds sing us their songs of love while rigorously
Investing their all in the building of their nest for their offspring, so impatient,
Nagging at times to their loved ones, then making it all a fun game to play. Nature
Gathering their families and I remember my parents for whom I thank God.

A time for all to flush from their covert,
Reverberates the spring zing,
Children caper across green meadows,
Humour climbs the seventh heaven !
