I Bid You Adieu

Winter I bid you adieu
your work is now done
the land is rested
and ready for new life

Slowly you release
your icy grip
and the snows
melt into puddles

Infinitely slowly
the land warms up
promise of new life
in every new bud

Spring only round the corner
soon all ablaze with colour
animals and birds give birth
joyful sights and sounds abound

Winter I bid you adieu
take your rest for now
lie in dormancy for the present
your time here done for this year

    I wish winter a harmonious adieu too my friend! This is exactly what I want to happen; for the snow and all the wintery things to disappear and for Spring to finally come! I enjoy winter, but this year is just too much, I hope we get a good Spring! I truly enjoyed reading this fabulous poem here this evening! What a magnificent piece, Great Work!!
