Come sweet springtime, oh springtime come quickly
Banish the chilly winds of winter again . . .
Open your doors of your treasures . . .
to gladden the souls who are weary of winter's reign!

Touch with your soft carressing fingers
the buds that are swelling on shrub and tree . . .
Linger a while among the birches . . .
Waken them from their dormancy!

Stop a while to flirt with the maples
Whisper sweet nothings where willows sway . . .
Sing to all creatures a song of gladness . . .
Loosen the bonds of winter today!

With magic touch awaken the flowers
Beckon the birds to sing to me . . .
Smile on the face of the ice bound rivers . . .
And send them tumbling down to the sea!

For we are weary, weary of winter
Its charms have faded and are no more . . .
Come sweet springtime, oh springtime come quickly . . .
Bring us the joys we are looking for!


  1. beautiful, margie..

    so glad u had fun!


  2. Amen. It can't come quickly enough. Nicely said.

  3. Love the poem, but I'm actually still waiting for winter, lol.

  4. It's coming Margie, it's coming!! HOLD ON!!:))

  5. Springtime. Always referred to as the rebirth of life and nature after the winter. We rarely call it the death of ice, but for anything to live, something else must pass on. So, I guess it is wishfully bye bye to the cold and hi to the warmth.
    Rock on!

  6. awwwww ur in Spring and Im in Autumn :(


  7. I love fall and winter, but you're turning me into a spring fan with this poem, Margie. :) Good stuff!
