a dVerse Twiglet

A March on Rain and Sleet

a new start,
they say, this spring,
this golden daffodil,
this sinking, stinking
sodden hill, this muddy
boot, this springy start
of pastel art, and so
I March on April’s
promise, this bringer,
this temptress.
this spring.

 

dVerse “Sunny Side-up” and Twiglet “start to sink”

  1. Oh yes….I’m reminded of the phrase “April showers bring May flowers” which is a romanticized way of saying you’re going to be sloshing in mud and puddles before the earth turns green! 🙂

  2. I absolutely love this, Misky! This poem describes my spring – except for the hill as we don’t have many of them in Norfolk! I especially love the breezy nod to Wordsworth’s ‘golden daffodil’ and
    ‘…this muddy
    boot, this springy start
    of pastel art’.
