April's Insistence

Fay Slimm.



April's Insistence.

Winter's sharp knife now lying buried
in burgeoning earth
means scythe ceases and once birdless
branches can trill as buds swell.

Seasonal tunes may unsettle composure 
of changeable nature
yet as earth's music grows warmer brown
shows desire for a greener dress.

Praise for April's insistence on action

so Spring may begin her flowery task.

          "April's Insistence" is a beautiful ode to the arrival of spring and the transformative power of nature.

          • Fay Slimm.

            You sum up my reason for writing this ode so well Mot. - April begins to show the power of switching from cold to warm with earth's plants thrusting upward from transformed root-grow and deserves a tribute methinks - thank you so much for your visit and read.
