Away bleak weather! It’s your time to flee.
Sun shines down and gifts me with his glow.
Pellucid are the streams from melting snow.
Robin’s come. I see her in my tree!
Ice and Sleet, it’s good to see you go!
Now the earth is ready to regrow.
Gladness sweetly takes a hold of me.
I take a stroll outside. It’s such a treat.
No longer do I trudge with dreary feet.
My gait is lively as I amble where
Yellow-flowered fields perfume the air.
Spring, is here! I feel my spirit sing
Thankfulness to God for everything.
Effervescently I greet each day.
Perpetually may this springtime stay!

S oon the rains fall to replenish mother earth
P lanting beauty for all it's glorious worth
R enewing life and splendor so very divine
I n step with Nature and God's holy shrine
N ew life bursting ever magnificently forth
G iving relief from cold winds from the North
S tarting billions of new lives serving us all
H eaping green all over this very precious ball

W hen the soil needs sweet liquid to gift birth
E ach drop serves to maintain Nature's firm grasp
R oaring down with each promise so dearly in clasp
S hifting fertile soil like a very finely honed rasp

Awaiting Loveliness - Acrostic
L Longing for the warmth of springtime days
O over frigid gloom of wintertime,
V varied memories come sweetly forth.
E Etched like a painting by Monet, I see
L longer, brighter days with springtime sun
I inviting buds to slowly make debut,
N nudging dormant trees to hazy green;
E expressing to have wintertime unfold
S springtime bliss when waiting earth renews
S splendid newborn days of loveliness.

Wind howling at my window.
I shiver and pull on my duvet slack.
Night greets me as I go to work and back.
Then proceed to light all sources of heat.
Engage in knitting in my fireside seat.
Retreated to warmth of cosy cottage.
Surprise at tender buds in garden.
Peel off all those extra layers.
Return of sunshine thanks to prayers.
Invigorating walks on country lanes.
Noting daffodils and crocus again.
Grateful that Spring is in the air.

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.

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.

Rejuvenating the world with colour
Irises wave in the wind like purple flags

Get out and enjoy the spring sunshine!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Spring is in the air fall now in the past
Pink and white blossom daisy’s don the grass
Reeds in the pond sound of water flow
Ignites all the senses sun stunning glow
Nesting in the trees the birds are finally home
Garden full of life wonderful place to stroll

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

F For beauty hidden from our sight
A A little while, returns ....and then....
I It lifts with wings and flutters on

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

Suffuse me in wonder glorious
