Here is a poem I wrote about springtime. I am always inspired by spring and the transition from winter. I live in an area with four distinct seasons, and the winters are very cold. When spring comes back around every year, I feel my appreciation for the sun and its warmth renewed.
Spring's First Touches Winter scares all life away Snow clouds blocking the sky Light fading quicker with each passing day Everyone scurrying inside Winter is long It's end ever out of sight The sun's warmth come and gone A most perilous of nights But winter is no eternal arrival Here for a while, until it must go A transient visitor on a cold reprisal As fleeting as the melting snow For spring always comes to usher in summer As reliably as the sun rises each morn It's soft first touches a gift like no other Delivering us from winter's harsh scorn After a long winter's night After months with no sun Spring pierces the sky with its light Returning at last to see winter outdone A step outside brings a sigh of relief For the first time in so long Like a feeling of disbelief As soothing as a birdsong The warmth of the sun's essence So tender and caring A calming presence All one's woes upending The cool breeze in the air A gentle caress Soft as a lover's care Of one who knows best The song of the birds Chirping to rise each morn A song with no words Each day feeling reborn Spring's return is like a gift Made ever sweeter by winter's journey A pleasant feeling set adrift Filling us with glee aplenty I dread winter each year But love it every year too For winter heralds in spring's cheer All the sweeter to go through
That was Spring’s First Touches, by Louis Martinez. What did you think of this poem? Did you enjoy it? Could it be improved? Let me know! I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Also, what do you think about springtime? Do you live in a place with a different climate and different types of seasons? If so, what is your perception of springtime?
