ODE TO SPRING


As spring awakens nature from her winter's sleep
so does she with our souls, a rendezvous keep
and moves a winter weary soul to sing
a song of gladness welcoming the spring.

The poets too bow to an urge to write
a poem holding all of spring's delight
as if mere words could picture or portray
the soft illusive newness of a warm spring day.

Ah! one could search the whole wide world in vain
and never find such loveliness again
for what could we compare on land or sea
to sight and sound of spring's sweet mystery.

    Margie you sure got talent in brewing up such beautiful poems!!!!

    Loved the line
    "as if mere words could picture or portray
    the soft illusive newness of a warm spring day."

  3. I have been very busy lately, Margie. See, I just updated now. Well, Niko is so much better now. After how many days of not seeing him, finally, I was able to see him today. Thank God, he's very much ok. The karaoke thingy has been the usual thing that we usually do whenever we get bored.

    The poem is beautiful, as usual. :) Take care always, Margie :D
