A Poem a Day #22

My poem today is dedicated to Miss Erin who enjoys ranting and raving about important things like books and reading. What a great way for a young lady to spend her time!


SPRING RAIN
by Elaine Magliaro

In March
a warm spring wind
blew by
coaxing showers
from the sky.
Silver raindrops
hurried down
tempting green up
from the brown.
They woke the sleeping
buds on trees
and tapped on hives
of honeybees.
They washed away
the winter snow
so all the waiting earth
could grow.

I love this one! It is just full of the joy I see all around me this week with the leaves popping and the flowers bursting. We had the rain last week and this is the result! :)

Cloudscome,

We had two days of glorious spring weather--and now it's back to gray and cool once again. Not a lot of green on the scene yet!
