Songs of Spring

Friday, May 8, 2020

 

 

Woods are filled

With the songs of Spring

Every tree

You can hear them sing

 

Trills and cries

To the waking morn

Boasting claims

Lusty warning scorns

 

Honking barks 

Of the pairing geese

Larks fair notes

Put my soul at peace

 

Downy raps

Echoing out far

Joyous tunes

That ring familiar

 

Piercing screech

From the circling hawk

Red-winged black

With their liquid talk

 

Spry catbird

With his raspy mew

Mourning dove

And her gentle coo

 

Crows keen caw

Chickadee dee dee

Swift swifts swoosh

Oh lovely phoebe

 

Ceaseless chat

Sweet angelic song

Sit and listen

I could all day long

May Be Folly

Polar vortex

Roarous wind

Swaying branches

Forest din

 

Panicked ducklings

Barking geese

Streaking ripples

Shattered peace

 

Darting martins

Racing clouds

Sun gone silent

Nature loud

 

Stunted bud tip

Piercing cold

May be folly

Harm untold

 

Raucous rumble

Swirling sprite

Shiver waiting

Warming light
