The Joys of Spring

The chilly, desolate air of winter is abating,

It’s time for frolicking; animals are mating,

Softer grounds yield bounty to probing beaks,

A sprightly dawn chorus will lift flagging spirits.

Springtime Awakening by Luc Oliver Merson

First splash of rowdy pigments signals awakening,

The patient spirit of spring, indefatigable, unwavering,

Bright yellow daffodils, pretty pink blossom, and

Vivid purple crocuses, give pleasure to gaze upon.

A song of Springtime by John William Waterhouse c. 1913

Rebirth and transition occurs all around us,

Unleashing fervent growth – stillness to flux,

Hibernation is over, sleepy eyes can refocus,

Once again, life is animated, freshness permeates.

Springtime at Giverny by Claude Monet c. 1886

Release and use your body’s reserves,

Shed your winter coat, it no longer serves,

Momentous celestial maneuvers fire up creation,

This very day ushers in the Spring Equinox.

The First Day of Spring by Alfred Sisley c. 1889

Longer days give rise to abundant energies,

Green leaves will soon clothe barren trees,

Regeneration sparks quiet, dormant hearts,

Welcome the bifurcation of old and new.

None can escape the March Hare’s madness,

It’s time to bid farewell to winter sadness,

Warm, hazy sun beams now and then,

We can venture forth from our snug cocoons.

Morning mist hangs, layered in pale cloud,

Illuminated by light, casting ghostly shroud,

Soon, like a parting season, it will evaporate,

Just as sky reflects blue, imbued with clarity.

Spring Morning by Ernest Lawson

In valley, moor, meadow and plain,

Plants are nourished with sunshine and rain,

The landscape undergoes a metamorphosis,

Once barren soil mutates into pastures fertile.

Small meadows in Spring by Alfred Sisley c. 1880

Stroll in sunny fields, this season do not squander,

Like a stream meanders, free your soul and wander,

With her glorious, lustrous hues, spring invigorates,

Breathe in life, explore nature’s vibrant palette.

Spring in Italy by Isaac levitan c. 1890

Spring in Italy by Isaac levitan c. 1890

Tightly clenched, silken buds suddenly unfurl,

Dancing with wind, sweet petals sway and swirl,

The Earth shares her joy through spring,

Spreading new hope with a canvas of colour…
