Blush of the Roses

Something hides this foggy day
      Out of reach and far away

Impatience blooms, a woeful sing
       Of soft pastel, sweet breath of spring

Where day will find red roses blooming
       Banish skies where dark clouds looming

Blush of heather, birds are wheeling
        Skin of winter, shedding, peeling

See not shadows, feel no rain 
       Shed the secrets, shed my pain

Foolish hearts, so restless weeping
        Hating thorns of winter keeping

Where wishing wistful thoughts to soar
        Above the clouds, and rainbows o'er

Where tree boughs bend with weight of fruit
        New blade of grass, so green to root

Today cries bitter, north wind blowing
        Tomorrow blushes,  roses growing

This is wonderful, Carrie. I love the way this flows, each couplet phrased so beautifully, to the final one, which is perfect in this! Awesome write! Hurry up spring! :) I think I may be raising a few rosy blushes aroud here myself lately but it beats the heck out of all that depressing stuff! (lol) :) Love your comments Carrie. They always make me smile! Love, Robin
