Welcome Spring!

Happy first day of spring.

Welcome Spring!

A chalked hopscotch
blossoms overnight

that robin
won’t stop singing

whole fields gloat
sunny dandelions

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.
