Submit one new poem on nature. I am looking for poems that celebrate Springtime. One poem, old or new, and any style. Focus should be on the joy of Spring.

The Vernal

The ice witch drips, moisture to ground.
Mother rolls round, tips her hat to the sun,
whispers warmth to field and forest,
gentle the gestures, change has begun.

Ditch and hedgerow bursting maternal,
gather their shelters from leaf and moss,
popping blue bells call time on all listeners,
the bridge between seasons is ready to cross.

A whiskered twitch, sniffs out from burrow,
blankets of leaves are folded away,
high flying birds sense their calling,
gaggle and chatter, will fly today.

Bright yellow fanfares bunch and bustle,
orchestral flora tune up to play,
earth conducts each buzz and whistle,
batons of sunlight held by the day.

Natural blood begins to rush,
frisky feet follow courtships dance ,
hungry mouths find teats to push,
Springs in our step, life has its chance.

Green Orphan

Green grass, spring at the stable
I will help you if I am able
Just as green as the spring hills
Are my fledgling working skills
Orphaned girl working hard
I'll gladly fork hay in the yard
I know you need a child strong as a horse
But a willing little girl is not much worse
You are not young but while you are strong
I want to learn to help you both along
I don't want to be all alone
To cultivate a heart of stone
My mind is giddy, running wild
A highly imaginative child
You have the power to tame me
But please don't ridicule or shame me
And perhaps one day when you are weak
I will help you manage things when I am at my peak

Nature's Concert

The rainbow sings against the sky
its colours dazzling way up high
blessed by drizzles from above
where clouds silently reside
below the blue lake slumber
fringed by weeping willows
that slips their drooping boughs
to the water below
under this tree, I sit
feeling gentle nature at its best

Clashes of clouds way up
the warm and cold collide
frenzy come the thunderclouds
spitting ferocious lightning
and roaring thunderclaps
the azure sky then turns to grey
the sun hides itís pretty ray
the rainbow sighs out
and natureís orchestra begin to play
full-fledged thunderstorm

I sit under this weeping willow
witnessing natureís glorious show
the whipping lashes of the rain
the thunderous applause from above
the lights lighting up the roiling clouds
thousand watts of flashing beams
the stage the mountains and the forests
the drum rolls and the cymbal clashes
an encore and then silence
balmy cool air takes centre stage
and the concert is over.

Crazy For Springtime

- Crazy For Springtime -

What kind of season is the winter?
Itís all white and gray, and colorless!
Whereís the fun, when you shiver?
Plus, shoveling snow is just a mess.
We havenít got much snow this year,
And thatís just totally fine with meÖ
When spring comes Iíll shed no tear:
Because Iíll be dancing silly and free!
I hate it when the frost kills the plants,
And dooms the flowers one and allÖ
But winterís frost not ever supplants:
The song of spring when it does call!
Iím in a mood for springtime, today,
To be wild and crazy and sing loudÖ
And not care, what anyone will say.
Iím crazy for spring, and Iím proud!
Want to be crazy with me; itsí funÖ
And asks so little when youíll listen?
Before Iím through, Iíll feel the sun,
Even if snow falls and ice will glisten!

Crazy for springtime, thatís the theme,
When the trees sleep, time to dreamÖ
Iíll throw a party and let my spirit soar.
Enough with all the cold, I want more!
Bring me the sun; I totally want it now,
Iíll show you fun as only I know how!

When I was out today, Iíd noticedÖ
Iím kind of unique with the way I am.
My black and red pigtails, just bliss,
Are unique, like my choice to stand:
For what I believe in; what I desireÖ
And obey no other stupid command.
Just my own feelings, and inner fireÖ
Which are different and never bland.
Iím rocking my look, being myself!
All around me are ordinary peopleÖ
Boring like identical books on shelf,
Of dull libraries beneath tall steeple!
Itís like the winter, devoid of color,
Except for me, and my springtimeÖ
Which bring me no end of comfort.
If Iím crazy, at least it feels sublime!
Want to be crazy with me; itsí cool,
And gives so much: if youíll give in?
I know what Iím doing; Iím no fool,
I listen to those voices I hear within!

Crazy for springtime, thatís the theme,
When the trees sleep, time to dreamÖ
Iíll throw a party and let my spirit soar.
Enough with all the cold, I want more!
Bring me the sun; I totally want it now,
Iíll show you fun as only I know how!

Well, you can tell Iím a colorful girl.
I donít like things bland or typicalÖ
I need lots from my own little world,
So things do not ever get to be dull!
Sure, winter will be here for a while,
And itíll be a bit before spring rises.
But it doesnít mean I will not smile!
Iím like a flower, full of surprisesÖ
Sometimes a rose black as evening,
Other times as red as blood can be.
At least Iím honest, not deceivingÖ
I may be crazy, but I think sensibly.
Sometimes one way or just another,
Whatever my heart tells me is right.
Whether like a little girl or a mother,
Iím always me, both day and night!
Iíd still like to take mallet and nailÖ
The crummy weather off into space.
Oh then the wind would really wail!
Because Iíd bonk it right in the face.

Crazy for springtime, thatís the theme,
When the trees sleep, time to dreamÖ
Iíll throw a party and let my spirit soar.
Enough with all the cold, I want more!
Bring me the sun; I totally want it now,
Iíll show you fun as only I know how!
