Spring

Let laughter ring, for here comes Spring. With warbling birds we gaily sing. As wizened Winter turns and goes, March promptly puffs her cheeks and blows! The Old Man’s gone. . . we’re rollicking when next comes April frolicking behind spry March. Her visage glows. Let laughter ring. Then Spring a climax sweet will bring. There at the Maypole, in a ring, are fetching maids in pretty clothes. And bounteous the sun now grows as June appears; . . Spring’s had her fling. Let laughter ring! Jan. 4, 2014 (Here comes Spring: I know , I know, wishful thinking!!)

What a gem! I just realized as I read this poem that I have probably borrowed more from your writing style during the time I have been at ps than any other poet; which would be because I really admire your poetry.

Not for a while yet, Andrea. I have poems coming out in Beyond Bree, Soul Fountain and Nomad's Choir. Maybe you want to check them out on - line? I also have 5o Copies of a new book coming out called "Inspirations". It is very cold here in the Big Apple! Peace & Love Matthew Anish
