The Glory of Green Green hues denote the healing of our earth, That special season of springtime’s rebirth. Green grasses growing o’er the hillside's face, Embracing greening trees in leafy lace. While amber fields engage in heaven’s kiss As raindrops splash into emerald bliss, I watch amazed as tender shoots abound With daffodils and tulips breaking ground. A floral scent begins to fill March air. St. Patty’s I’ll wear flowers in my hair. So many varied hues that can be seen, This Irish lass loves every shade of green! Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Hi Connie, another superb write from your pen. The glory of emerald green shining in the spring sunshine. Your words take us to the heart of the canvas you paint. your words so deep, powerful, beautiful, paint a living picture we do step within. So gently flow the words. In one word, superb. This is a seven and it is singing into my faves....Vlad.

Gave this a seven, Connie. Your poem reminds me of a brilliant Oscar Wilde poem. The poet describes a scene next to the Thames in Autumn where he describes everything in shades of yellow; yours is all in shades of green! Beautiful picture: Reminds me more of the Derbyshire Dales than the Emerald isles...Truly lovely wherever it happens to be! My very best regards, Connie!! Your friend... :) john.

I remember your poem that I fav'ed. It was 100 times better than mine Rhonda. I am certain it will take top honors. I just felt like entering the contest and saw that it was about to close so I hurriedly wrote this poem to enter, last one to enter. Thank you for your nice comment. Hugs, Connie

connie, I especially enjoyed where you inserted into your poem about flowers in your hair for St. Patty's day. Good luck with your lovely entry into the green contest.

I have seen the entries and my little offering can't hold a candle to them but I just wanted to enter it before it closed and wrote this in a hurry and was the last entry. Thanks, Connie
