The Scent of Spring

Gone be those winter chills that freeze the bone 

Lest we turn our backs to the sun 

Spring is tapping on our frigid skin

Offering a taste of summers warmth 

A glint 

A hint 

of what’s to come 


And as winter idly slouches back its grip on earths green lands 

Spring with it’s sprightly spirit 

takes a gentle hand 

Easing and coaxing those little buds to bloom 

Amalgamating all natures scents

To create a spring perfume

                    AHH! Spring for which we long and wait
                    From blistering cold, but winter is not to hate
                    As that's the season, when all regenerates
                    To strengthen the limbs for work that spring will create

                    • LittleGift

                      Beautifully put Suresh, thanks ever so much for sharing such lovely words and reading my poem :)

                      Very good write but according to the weather forecast winter is arriving this week .

                      • LittleGift

                        They have been threatening snow for a while now. I hope they are wrong again. My plum tree won’t like it all, it’s covered in beautiful blossom

                        Thanks for reading Goldfinch60 :)

                        • Goldfinch60

                          I hope your plums are wonderful, when I can get out one of the walks that I do passes plum trees in the wild and the plums are beautiful.
