Poetry Sunday: Spring’s Song

Spring’s Song


Light flickers at the edge of my sight

And rouses me from sleep and the dark of night.



Breaking before the warmth of a fine spring day

With fire in the sky riding the sun’s drowsy rays.



Only whispers of a cooling breeze tickling the dew

Finding open windows to gently waft through.



The birds lullaby adds to my tranquil repose

As I open my eyes and wake from this languid doze.



And sweet honey scents drift through my dreams

Waking the shadows with dancing, dappled sun beams.

I wrote this poem as I thought about those first true warm spring days where the light, and sounds and scents all change and add such an excitement.  And I am dreaming of those spring days now and that light, and the sounds and especially the scents.  All are gone in winter….replaced by a different canopy.

I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.

  1. This is gorgeously written, Donna! Especially love; “The birds lullaby adds to my tranquil repose as I open my eyes and wake from this languid doze.” 🙂

    1. Oh thank you my dear friend…..that is one of my favorite lines too and my favorite part of spring….the birds’ song waking me and just laying there listening for so long!

  2. There’s nothing like an open window to fully appreciate the sounds and sights of nature.

  3. Lovely. For some reason:

    ‘Waking the shadows with dancing, dappled sun beams’

    tingled – like a wind chime – for me. Exquisite. I’d have to say … one of my favorite lines, that I’ve read, today.

  4. Ah, this play of light and color is lovely. It is all so very comforting — the languid doze, dancing sunbeams, et al. Tranquil indeed, and a beautiful way to wake up. 🙂
