Spring’s anthem

Sun over cattails, Copyright Silverleaf 2016

Bluebell carpets grace tree shadows now
Another verse in spring’s anthem

Flowers, earth-sprung, where yesterday saw none
Another verse in spring’s anthem

Bird-trills lullaby evening’s slow-sinking sun
Another verse in spring’s anthem

North Wind lifts and lilts last year’s fattened cat tails
Another verse in spring’s anthem

Stark lace-patterned trees tie mud to sky
Another verse in spring’s anthem

This fair-weather season, wild and new,
Just another verse in spring’s anthem.


A call-and-response poem for NaPoWriMo day 26.
