Closer By A Day
and post notes and photos about your poem like Gregory R Barden.
* This is my first Monorhyme, and it seems a rather challenging form ... but fun! *
Not soon enough, will winter go away
Taking with it all that white and gray
Waiting for the sun to thus betray
Remains that frozen vestiges array
Warming temps arising day-to-day
Winter's final gasps thus making way
For such a bright and colorful display
Exploding in an emerald green ballet
A Cardinal in his crimson red beret
Sings the morn his romance resume'
A little "peeper", each dusk's protege
And groggy hibernators join the fray
Dancing 'cross a lawn of grass parquet
The squirrels making mischief, so risque'
Thus worthy of a brooding Hemingway
All these things to chase the cold dismay
Of a long and somber winter's disarray
And if allowed an old and trite cliche'
I wish we had the power to make it stay
Then every day could be ... a springtide day.
