Trees wear a gown of bright emerald green Where birds are nesting in branches up high Parents shield fledglings so they can’t be seen Until they can spread their new wings and fly Daffodils dance in the warm zephyr breeze Bees buzz seeking out these pretty flowers Yellow pollen doesn't make the bees sneeze! They will pollinate blooms for many hours Young lambs gamboling around in the fields Birds fly high in the sky of azure blue I love the spring season where nature yields Our earth’s a stunning place for me and you Spring brings rejuvenation to our land The vibrant countryside looks very grand 14 lines 10 syllables per line Checked with how many syllables* Doesn't counted as 2 syllables Had previously been awarded 1st place in another contest and also POTD subsequently given n/a in Best sonnet contest Sponsored by Laura loo judged on 3/3/2018 9:36:00 AM Entered into POTD Contest Sponsored By Richard Lamoureux Poets Notes. I struggle to write sonnets I find the form extremely challenging so was delighted to get POTD in 2016 for this particular poem 08~19~16

Sonnets, the poetry of love. This surely demonstrates the love which I share for spring. Let other poets witter on about the beautiful colours of autumn but for me there is joy in springtime's blooms.

I love the vibrancy and regeneration of spring but I adore autumn and its wonderful colours - winter is my least favourite season - dull grey cold days:-( hugs Jan xx
