A Springtime Bloom

A springtime bloom with golden hue Swaying 'neath clouds with fluffy plume Symbols of hope and all things new A springtime bloom They dare to rise in winter's gloom As their trumpets come into view One season fades, as one's abloom Petals glisten with morning dew Weaving beauty on springtime's loom They always appear right on cue A springtime bloom 10-27-19 Writing Challenge - October- 2019 - Flower or Flowers Contest Sponsor: Dear Heart - Wiishkobi Ode Flower Chosen: Daffodils ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A roundel consists of nine lines each having the same number of syllables, plus a refrain after the third line and after the last line. The refrain must be identical with the beginning of the first line: it may be a half-line, and rhymes with the second line. It has three stanzas and its rhyme scheme is as follows: a b a R ; b a b ; a b a R ; where R is the refrain. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Congratulations my friend - I have been off soup for about two weeks as we sold our home and had a hectic, busy and emotional time packing and unpacking - the house we sold, saw three generations pass through it and it was a very hard decision we made but we decided to downsize - my husband and I were rattling around in our previous house. I loved your poem Joseph - it has a happy ring to it - 'Symbols of hope and all things new, A Springtime bloom! Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.
