Poetry Friday: first green flare

Yesterday's page from "A Year of Tiny Pleasures" calendar. 

I can't stop thinking about spring poems and feeling spring-y.

Spring is gloriously, finally, truly-madly-deeply here. We can get outside, walk, breathe, not freeze, feel a breeze, believe in promises again.

Enjoy the promise of this lovely little piece by Sidney Wade, and then visit the Poetry Friday round-up at Carol Varsalona's Beyond LiteracyLink.

Such a lovely, lyrical poem, Karen. Thanks for sharing. We're happy to see green back on our trees. :)

Ooh, what a cute calendar!
Every day I check the leaves on the tree in front of my office window, and each day, a few more open. Good old April.

Thank you Karen. What a gorgeous poem. I appreciate the introduction to Sidney Wade's poetry.

Karen, your introductory remarks on your blog are so springy that my heart wants to fly out into the springtime air. But wait, it's raining outside so I will stay cuddled inside reading more poetryliscious poetry. Spring is here!

Oh, I love that calendar page and the poem, the 'quiver and dart' is just right, isn't it! Thanks, Karen!

Spring is indeed in full-blown miracle mode. I can't get enough of it!!

Kay said...

Yea for spring and for poems to celebrate it even more!

Thanks for sharing this lovely poem! I'm so happy for you that spring finally arrived! (My daughter had snow again over the weekend.)
