Rite of Spring

Absent is the frigid cold
Breath expelled now goes unseen
Come are days of warmth and light
Dawning of the longer days
Ere the twinkling stars of night
Forest green returns my sight
Gone are drifts of wind blown snow
Hardening has the Winter been
Inspiring is the Sun again
Juniper again in bloom
Katydids begin their swoon
Lambent is the setting Moon
Meandering is the ice less stream
Nature once again will sing
Opulent is the scent of Spring
Palpable is everything
Quavering voices can be heard
Revelations of the Birds
Sanctified by warmer rain
Telltale signs of Summer
Unborn flowers yet in bud
Versed is Mother Nature
Wakeful is Her duty keep
Xenophobic wildlife roam
Yonder, never far from home
Zealous is the Rite of Spring
