Poem #1 NaPoWriMo
The day bursts forth,
with the golden sun glowing
and it makes for perfect dreaming –
as all around the spring is blossoming.
Yellow daffodils with flowers like trumpets,
seem to blow a stream of music into the spring air,
daisies with yellow centers seem to be smiling at me
and I joyfully march among them all like in a grand parade.
My apple tree all in pink and white,
there is so much to see
and the trees wearing their green,
I long to stray along country roads.
Beside babbling brooks
and into the woods,
where the tops of the pines and firs –
wave in the springtime breeze.
Oh, how lovely are days like this,
whenever the spring comes again,
I know I’ll never,
tire of the beauty this season brings.
All through my life,
I will love seeing birds,
flying across the skies,
while down below dance butterflies.
Their songs floating to me in the wind.
these are the days,
that are to be treasured –
days full of sun and pleasure.
There is nothing like it,
the loveliness all about,
nothing at all until another spring comes round
and I have to smile at everything I see.
When spring has done
and nature is in full bloom,
along will come summer,
to enhance all that the spring season has brought.
