Another Spring Poem
What is there to write about this season,
That some poem has not said better before?
Perhaps I should put forward good reason
For attempting to produce yet one more.
Firstly, of course, I could cite the weather,
That now guarantees one a poetic mood,
As the sun shines, and birds flock together,
Returning soon to another new brood,
And added to the freshness of the air,
There is, all around, a pervasive scent,
So much blossoming and ripening flair,
How could one not feel one's muse is content?
Once more the trees are bedecked in new leaf,
Bare branches are now a thing of the past,
Renewal has come as vibrant relief,
A variety of greens to contrast,
While one would find upon the forest floor
A kingdom of busy, bustling insects,
Each of them a tiny competitor
As each miniature life intersects.
And as well, if one's heart has remained young,
One might make mention of love and romance,
Of youthful gauntlets that would soon be flung,
As again brave hearts are given their chance.
