Sonnet For Spring
and post notes and photos about your poem like Daniel Turner.
As days grow longer, melancholy creeps
An uninvited guest, which winter brings
It dims the candle my mind tightly clings
Consuming light, from darkness whence he leaps
In doldrums dark, my heart held captive weeps
Held hostage by north winds that bite and sting
Entombed by winter's chill, awaiting spring
Time slowing to a crawl whilst nature sleeps
But then one day in March, an equinox
The light begins to overtake the dark
In color, daydreams dawn as dark does fade
Sad melancholy flees through fields of phlox
Now freed from winter's bonds, my heart embarks
To chase spring's sun into the summer shade.
