A Song To Spring -Contest



     The joyous scent of living
          That leaps from life's perfume
     Spring murmurs its beginning
          From hope and dreams in bloom

     The choir of color sings of thee
          With hues in rich new verse
     As if this song was meant to be
          From rhymes all well rehearsed 

     As petals graced with morning dew
          Rise softly towards the sun
     So in Spring hope doth renew 
          Its perfect Love for life begun.

The choir of colors ... oh to hear the sights! A soft brush of lovely rhymes, fitting for this time of year. Pity it seems so short, and before you know it ... the days become scorchers! Good poem, Charlie.

Everything reborn does seem to have a positive effect,as opposed to death and dying. It does seem to give the chin at lift doesn't it? Thanks Tim
