Two Views on Spring

1.
Eternal Spring

O Peaceful trees
Permit the bees
To raid your flowers
As they please
And let the breeze
Play with your leaves
Before they meet 
Old winter’s freeze
And waft your fragrance
 Everywhere
And strew your petals in my hair
For spring will bring it all
And let you 
Squander it again.

2.
As Seasons Go

Lifeless
Dormant in the ground
Stick- like to my view 
And yet in spring
Yourself will you renew
And leaves and fruit abound
Rejoicing in the dew
And verdant will your vines 
Bring forth
The possibility
Of nectar sweet your winter wines
Will bring me ecstacy.
Return to dormancy 
Content I’ll be
To let you mark the seasons
For eternity
And me.

Oh Suz, your second poem brought it all home to me and I had a feeling of content, something only fall usually brings. Lovely, both of them! Please share this at PFT.

Both views are blooming with beauty. Anticipating the next spring brings a treat all its own.
