The Wealth of Spring Assorted spring flowers, naked, rise in morning sun Breaking through a thin blanket of snow, earth spun. Cascades of dainty Narcissus smile with golden faces Drinking up the sun as morning warmth embraces. Enjoy the heavenly floral scent that gardens bring. Fledglings high in tree nests sense that it is spring. Growing fast they will soon gain courage to take flight, Hovering low over canopies, it is their birthright! Irises spring forth in hopes to match the sky Just as daffodils claim the colors of sun’s eye. Keep the cherry blossom's imprint in your mind Leaving memories of pink poetic petals that you find. Moments spent in this season’s refreshing rain Nurture and inspire a poet’s muse again. Only spring can coax the lovely lilac’s bloom Perfuming breezes, singing springtime’s tune. Quaint bird houses dot the country lanes Rewarding visions viewed through window panes. Spring reclaims our joyful mood as winter ends, Treating us to vivid colors this season sends. Uncloaking animals in snowy hibernation, Verdant becomes the blessings of vegetation. Wealth is seen in all the colors of sweet spring Xylogenous creatures in forests are welcoming. Yellowthroat warblers singing in trees greet melting snow. Zephyr’s enchant, as they scatter blossoms down below. 5-24-22 ABCEDARIAN POEM Any Subject You Want Poetry Contest~First Place~ Sponsored by: Caren Krutsinger February 21, 2015 Abecedarian - Poetry Contest~First Place~ Sponsored by Shadow Hamilton

Oh, Connie, how I want to just sit in your garden of loveliness every day soaking in the flowers, the perfume, the songs of the birds. I love the thought that when flowers first bloom they are naked at birth!!! Your amazing talent as a poet shines through every line! Heartfelt congratulations my friend. This is a fav for me! :) Blessings!

Earlier I wrote a comment. By mistake it was deleted. So I have to register my appreciation for this lovely abecedarian poem once more. This is indeed beautiful with some lines I love so much as---"Only spring can coax the lovely lilac’s bloom Perfuming breezes, singing springtime’s tune." Congratulations on your first place win, Connie!

Your vocabulary is extensive and your word choices are unique. The spring theme is captured in the words projected with such poise and color, extolling the virtues of spring's arrival in nature with its warmth and promise of renewal. #7

Connie, your spring poem is delightful to read, especially today when I am looking at snow, snow, snow, this form creates a beautiful poem but I did find it somewhat difficult, those X and Z words are so hard to find, but well done and thanks so much for visiting my poetry today . . .
