Can You Sense the Spring?

Though it is not officially spring just yet, my honey bees and blueberries thinks it is signified by their activity and buds. Here is a poem of springiness. Hope you enjoy.

Can You Sense the Spring?

Can you feel the sunlight warm, streaming through the trees?

Melting sparkling, crystal snow, breaking loose winter’s freeze,

Preparing slumbering dormant buds, for springing into leaves,

Can you feel the sunlight warm, streaming through the trees?

 

Can you smell the flowered wind, wafting its perfume?

Lush, brilliant, meadow carpet, a rainbow now in bloom,

Swaying, budding wood, adding its flavor to the tune,

Can you smell the flowered wind, wafting its perfume?

 

Can you hear the honeybees, flying through the air?

Buzzing from flower to flower, with precision and great care,

Harvesting with great diligence, what the blooms have to share,

Can you hear the honeybees, flying through the air?

 

Can you see the butterflies, dancing on the wing?

With a graceful, melodious waltz, that nature alone can bring,

Light and lively creatures, these aerial heralders of spring,

Can you see the butterflies, dancing on the wing?

 

Can you taste the springtime rain, falling from the sky?

The thirsty earth does drink it in, as if its throat was dry,

Cool brooks now enlivened, give off a refreshing sigh,

Can you taste the springtime rain, falling from the sky?

 

So, with your senses heightened, take the springtime in,

Bees to butterflies to fragrances, lofty on the wind,

Embrace the warming rays, and dance when the rains begin,

Yes, with your senses heightened, take the springtime in.
