Spring Tingles

After the endurance test that is winter (for many of us) what a joy it is to see the early glimpses of Spring. Global warming concerns aside, it is such a pleasure to wander in the sunshine. Today’s simple poem is in honour of this year’s sensational prelude to Spring.

Beginning to Spring

We’ve nearly got to March

The mornings are less grim

The evenings aren’t so dark

The sense of hope less dim

There is a buoyant blueness

Though premature it is

The sun brings fortune to us

More va va voum and whizz

There’s soft where once stood starch

I’m filled with joyful whim

We’ve nearly got to March

Oh let the Spring begin!

  1. I like “buoyant blueness” and “More va va voum and whizz.” They speak to me of places for kites to ride the wind and the froth on a beautifully made latte. The short lines are very rhythmic and the rhyme scheme is nice too, with the same rhyme coming full circle, grim and dim at the start, whim and begin (an oblique, my favorite) at the end. 🙂
