Spring's Melody (repost)


This is a repost of a poem I wrote a couple years ago. Many times you will find blips here and there, I've never claimed to be an editor, lol. But I am a writer.



Spring's Melody


Springtime is only a glimpse

of the glory of God


The sunshine silently shouts

"AWAKE"-- his rays applaud


The redbud trees blush

as painted leaves burst forth


The flaxen lilies proclaim

that life is now reborn


Children's joy is heard

as a choir from above


A mother's heart assured

like the nesting dove


A gentle rain drifts in

on clouds of somber hue


The sun whispers goodnight

as his day is through


The great Oak stills himself

as his leaves breathe a sigh


The nightingale lulls me to sleep

with a babys lullaby
