To Spring ...


The brooks are flowing
With sparkling water
Fresh from Winter's melt
Along the grassy borders
And rippling over stones
The freshness can be felt
Sunshine warms the meadows
To release their sweetest scent
The trees and hedgerows
Are blossoming anew
With verdant buds and leaves
Leaving behind the dullness
Of their long Winter rest
Spring adorns the fields
With a myriad of flowers
Everywhere they bloom
Fields,hedgerows and bowers
Such beauty to be seen
And gone is Winter's gloom ...

Is someone looking towards Spring already? *Grins*

BEAUTIFUL!

Lovely poem, Dianne, and as always a beautiful, apt image to accompany your sweet words :)

Hope you're having a great weekend, dear!
Much Love,

J Cosmo Newbery said...

...or not to spring?

Now, what is the answer?

dianne said...

Thank you dear Joop for your kind comment.
Yes, Springtime is a lovely season with all of the beautiful flowers. I can only imagine how beautiful the masses of tulips would be in Holland.
Greetings.

ReReally lovely this beautiful poem, full of exquisite images. "Poetry is painting the ears, like the poetry of painting the eyes." Lope de Vega

dianne said...

Dear Fiona thank you for your praise of my poem, you are very generous.
Sadly the milder weather of Springtime here will soon be over and the heat of Summer will soon be upon us.
I am pleased that you enjoyed both the poem and the image.
I hope you have a lovely weekend too my dear friend.
Love, Dianne.

dianne said...

Thank you dear /t. , for your kind words, you are very sweet ... I haven't quite captured Spring, there was so much more that I could say but I could not find the words. :)

xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

To spring or not to spring? I don't know dear J Cosmo , I guess it would depend on how energetic you were. :)

xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you for your very lovely comment dear Leovi , I am so pleased that you could see the images and hear the sounds in my poem ... like the water rippling over the stones, such a lovely, soothing sound.
Also for the quote from Lope de Vega.
Besos

Lady*♥*Fiona said...

Ohh, I know the feeling all too well ~ I cringe each time our summer draws near! I tell people that I start looking forward to Fall when Spring starts ha ha!

Too hot here in the desert but the winters are grand :) I thought you were perhaps living in a climate that was making you dread winter already but it's the other way around! :D

Stay cool, my dear friend, and start dreaming of Fall ;) x0x

Rahul Bhatia said...

I can almost feel the flowers and the fragrance around! Such a lovely poetic work... lovely Dianne!

K9 said...

one of my favorite things about your page is when gloom sets in here - i can come to the southern hemisphere for warmth and beauty. thank you!

your words of poetry make me feel happy inside. thanks!

Thank you Elliot for stopping by, your kind words and for following my blog. :)

dianne said...

DearFiona, no I don't look forward to our Summers, they are far too hot and humid. It is Spring and today was 38ºC which is a fair indication that the Summer will be hot. I am just enjoying a southerly breeze which has just come up from the southern ocean, so that has cooled the temperature slightly. I love Autumn and Spring and where I live in Sydney, New South Wales I am close to the east coast so the Winter months are mild compared to other countries and further west in this State where it does snow.
Yes I am dreaming of Autumn already. :D
You take care too dear friend.
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you dear Rahul for your comment, that is such a lovely thing to say. :)

dianne said...

Thank you dearest K9 ,for your sweet comment, yes it seems to be 'golden' here at present and yes there is always plenty of warmth for those I care for.
I am thinking it would be wonderful at chickory now with all of that Autumn foliage and the crisp, cool air. I can almost hear the creek flowing and the leaves and twigs snapping underfoot as I walk around enjoying the beauty. :)
Thank you sweet girl!

Amiga Poeta.Tu poesia és puro sentimiento, que nos hace entrar
en los más hondo de nuestro ser.

Evanir said...

Que o amor e a amizade
Qua nasceu entre nós, prevaleça !
Que você jamais me abandone!
Porque eu nunca te abandorei!
Não se esqueça estou te seguindo
E te amando.
Logo se Deus quiser voltarei com minhas visitas.
Beijos com infinita ternura .
Uma linda semana.
Evanir..

Olga said...

I want you to know that, when summer comes here again, and I'll be wandering around such a field, I will learn this poem by heart, and recite it out loud :)

dianne said...

Thank you dear Paul ,for your very sweet comment. I wish I was there right now too, it is far too hot here. I could do with some cool Spring weather by the brook in my poem. I am pleased to hear that your weather is as mild as an English Springtime and I hope there is none of that heavy snow that the UK experienced last Winter.
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Querido amigo Juan , su parte del sur de España suena maravilloso, un gran clima, mar, tierra hermosa y montañas, perfecto. Gracias por compartir las imágenes preciosa de su paraíso en tu blog.
Un fuerte abrazo

dianne said...

Thank you dearest Foamy for your sweet comment. Yes I wish these Spring days were a little cooler and I am not looking forward to Summer ...but I should not complain people in other countries are worse off than I am.
Thank you, cold air is always appreciated. I will send you some warm air so that you are not so cold in Winter. :)
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Olga dear friend, thank you, that is such a sweet thing to say.
I was very happy with the elements of this poem, the feelings, the imagery etc., but each time I read it I am not so sure that it flows how I would have wanted, but I do not have time to re-work it. I am sure your recital of my words will be much better, especially in such a pretty field. :)

Liebe Jasmin , ich danke Ihnen für Ihre schönen Kommentar, ich bin glücklich, dass meine Worte haben etwas Wärme zu Ihnen gebracht lieber Freund und Ihnen süße Träume des Frühlings. Es tut mir leid, dass es so kalt, nass und neblig ist derzeit aber freuen uns auf Ihren herrlichen Frühling.
Ich nahm meinen ersten Rosen vor nicht langer Zeit noch zu früh, um sie von den Opossums, die die Knospen fressen Liebe zu retten ... traurig sie nicht öffnen.
Liebe und herzliche Grüße, Dianne

Leovi said...

La primavera
Va llenando de rosas
Los corazones que sueñan

La primavera
Con sus bellos colores
El alma triste alegra.

spring
Rose fills
The hearts that dream

spring
With beautiful colors
The sad soul rejoice.


So begins a flamenco song Camaron de la Isla

Pero burros conozco a muchas personas dignas de llevar ese nombre.

I leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a post on a site or if I have something to
contribute to the discussion. It's a result of the sincerness displayed in the post I read. And on this article "To Spring ...". I was moved enough to leave a thought ;) I actually do have some questions for you if it's okay.
Is it just me or does it look like some of these responses look like
left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I'd like to follow you. Would you list the complete urls of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
