winter and spring
Spring, the master
composer, squeezes runs
from the dying snow.
The whole street stretches,
shares a faint
but urgent beat.
Feeling the rhythm,
the squills create blues
for the golden horns of daffodils.
And Spring trains the robins
to warble the words,
as she calls out the dance.

Good heavens! This is a symphony in the making! What music!
Ooh... this is wonderful, Carol. I especially like the last stanza.
And I love spring for the newness it brings!
Hi Magical Mystical Teacher,
Spring makes everything dance and sing. Thanks for your comment.
Thanks for your comment and for visiting my blog. I appreciate both.
Thanks C.C. I love spring in all of its manifestations too.
Not much difference between spring and winter where I live, but I love to think of the transformation that takes place in colder climes.
If you get too far south, you never see spring... just dream it...
Gorgeous, Carol. We aren't there yet in Montana...but it's coming. Your words have me anticipating spring's dance. Thank you. ~Brenda
One of the things I love about living in eastern Canada is the dramatic change in the seasons. There is no subtlety here.
Hi Stan Ski,
There are advantages to being in a warmer and less changeable climate too...not so much snow removal equipment needed.
Spring is coming but not yet here for us either. There is still snow and frozen earth. The daffodil is from last spring. Thanks for visiting.
Yea, Spring! the yellow horns of the daffodills. I heard the first cuckoo this monring! Great wordle :)
Yes, spring makes music, then dances to her own tune. Like the way this flows off the tongue, and the music it makes,
Carol, spring is a wonderful time of year and you describe her so well here. Nicely done.
Lovely! I love the idea of spring training the robin!
Thank you Veronica. We don't get cuckoos here.
Thanks Elizabeth for your comment. I love the ways in which the seasons are the same every year yet remain different in how and when they arrive.
Hello Flaubert. Thank you for visiting my blog. Spring is my favourite season.
Thanks Juliet. I'm so happy to hear and see signs of spring arriving. I had fun with the wordle.
I like the idea of the daffodils trumpeting the blues whilst the Robins sing along.
The idea of Spring as master composer is excellent, Carol.
That idea tickled me as well. Spring is a blend of song and dance for me. Thanks for your comment.
Thanks enerihot. It seemed to be a great image as spring takes everything before her and makes the pieces work together to create something new.
Such lightness and joy..i could see and feel all the colours and warbles.. :)
Well done! I especially like "the street stretches" and "Spring is the master composer".
Thank you Cheryl and jaerose for visiting my blog and for such kind comments.
Very nice, Carol. It is a lilting waltz from season to season. I enjoyed this.
Thank you Walt. I think the lilting waltz from season to season will have an interruption this evening. We are getting another snow storm here. Sigh.
Oh, I do love it and the picture is perfect for the poem. Lovely.
