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.

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 . . .

Dear Connie, Spring truly comes to life in your beautiful abecedarian. To some, it is a tough form, but you make it look easy and it flows so well. Big congratulations on your win! I can't spend much time here for health reasons so I thank you for reading my work. I never expect to win when I enter a contest. It's just a creative exercise for me. No boo-hoos :D I hope you and your family are well, dear. God bless you. Love, Carolyn

Thank you very much for your thoughtful comment on this poem Carolyn. I was inspired to write it by the thought of the abundance of flowers that will hopefully soon appear! I loved your spring poem. I hope you keep well. My family and I are doing well. My little granddaughter turned three years old March 2nd. How time flies! Blessings, Connie
