Happy first day of spring.
A chalked hopscotch
won’t stop singing
whole fields gloat
a rainbow of tulips
sprinkles the town
muddy ruts scar the park
which smells of fresh-mowed grass
spring-fevered pickup trucks
race to every corner
air is heavy with spicy
fragrance of sticky leaf buds
I feel a raindrop on one cheek
sun’s warmth on the other

My students and I were inspired by your poem to write a first day of spring poem. I’ll be posting our efforts tomorrow. Thanks.

Happy Spring. I am waiting for the snow to thaw and crocus to rear their heads.
Beautiful poem and hopeful picture.
I am looking forward to reading more of your posts/ poems.
