Spring: The Anthology

in hopeful light of spring's first dawn,

morning dew whispers to the waking crocus,

take me back

to rumors of a thawing earth,

where life stirs

under the lifting weight of winter

take me back

to the cardinals' return,

their red frame a stark contrast

against the fading gray.

They sing beneath the sun,

coaxing the buds on barren branches

to blush shades of green

at their melody.

by the brook,

children shed their coats

and the water dances over smooth stones,

take me back

to laughter tangled in the wind,

small hands plucking daffodils,

and mud-splattered boots.

under the vast stretch of awakening skies,

clouds part like curtains

unveiling spring’s reign,

take me back

to the ever-present scent

of rain on pavement,

fresh and sharp — the fragrance of renewal.

to gardens where lovers walk,

hands still clasped, vines entwined,

take me back

to promises whispered through bushes,

floral buds witnessing vows renewed

spring holds us, briefly

in the cradle of rebirth

take me back
