All around our hedgerows and gardens
Buds are forming bringing brilliant
Colour into our lives where previously
Dreary winter darkness lurked.
Everywhere new life is forming
Fields are bouncing with spring lambs
Gamboling about with their friends.
Hyacinths sensational scent fills the air
I simply love this time of year
Just bursting with new life
Knowing that spring is finally here
Lightens my spirits and
Makes me smile
Nesting birds collect food for fledglings
Only pausing for tiny breaks. They are
Perfect parents who work tirelessly
Quietly and lovingly
Raising their beautiful brood who are
Soon to leave the nest
Trees become dressed in gorgeous green
Until they are fully clothed
Verdant vegetation covers the land
With new crops growing
Xanthic coloured daffodils
Yearn for spring sunshine and merrily they
Zigzag in the warm winds

Thanks Rick - I never picked up a pen and wrote a poem until my hubby got cancer and had surgery in Nov 2013 - I wrote my first poem on that day and have learned so so much and now its like a drug. I need to write - its got me through the worst time in my life... if you read some of my poems especially around Dec 2014 when my sons 2 friends died and my dad was dying from terminal cancer... I am now planning to self publish a book of my funny poems:-) hugs Jan xx

Lovely spring thoughts, Jan. Can't wait until all this ice and snow disappears in S. Indiana. Things are hatching underneath. Congratulations on a fine abecedarian poem.

I usually don't like this form because I can usually see people trying too hard with things to say to fill the alphabet... You worked it and I didn't even notice the alphabet... That's so rare... Great Write!
