Snow Drops

Snow Drops

A Poem by Kathy Van Kurin
"

Iv'e been wanting to write a long awaited poem of coming Spring since late winter. My husband and I noticed a robin had built a nest on our front door light. No front yard work for us.

"

 

Snow Drops



Snow drops with your snow shine,

 dear crocus, dainty grace.


Hope's -Healing-heart-song

 midst shadows cold,

 melt the wind and rain.


Tonight’s anticipation, 

of flowers coming soon,

 I sit by hearth of flame.


 Counting the days of the calendar

every worker bee arrives anew.


Fruit -Tree bouquets, 

Sing their fragrance,

 first cherry blossoms true.


Robin upon front door lantern,

built her nest,

 laid four eggs blue, 


No more waiting

 in hibernation 

Sunshine playful calls!


Peel off the layers.  

Throw off the cloak.

look to the dark soil sweet.


Days stretching longer, 

pull every creature along;

 let winter gently flee.


Faith

-Rare, fragrant, wondrous;

welcome possibilities. 


My sigh, lye’s waiting;

 to crown midst glory. 


Queen- verdant- spring,

you rule!

Did a little editing and the punctuation may not be perfect. Took our the few smaller font lines. Thank you to those who were so kind and seemed to like it.

Who cares about punctuation when the beauty of your words about our wonderful world is expressed this way! Your pleasure oozes from each and every line of this poem, Kathy.. and i just want to bathe in them!!

I feel the great anticipation of a wondrous season, an embrace of faith's possibilities and coming of age of Nature's glory which glorifies Him. Those small inhabitants( birds, bees...) of this Earth of ours make a big difference in our connection and playful calls. An excellent one, Cathy and God bless...:)..............

All true. You are welcome gracefully...:)................
Just saw the word snow there, and panicked.
Thought i'd went to sleep and woke up in December.
I suppose in a way, we're all worker bees. Spring usually means Paint. Though i suppose in a way, it's all colours.

Nature at its best. Winter goes to sleep and spring embraces all in it intoxicating sweetness. The contrast of thoughts are very well alternated between the big fonts and the smaller ones.

This is an interesting poem in its format. Is there meaning in the three and two line stanzas? and the small print? Anyway, it is a lovely poem on a lovely subject. I enjoyed it.

I like the feel of this. The robins remind me of a friend who has had doves nesting in his yard for years.
To make this more powerful, play with it. Just keep the feeling.

You did mother nature proud, Kathy! Best of luck with your baby robin's.

"Queen - verdant spring - you rule." My toes are anticipating the blades of grass as I speak. ; )

Me too. Barefoot through and through.
The emergence of those diminutive, yet oh so pretty white flowers does indeed instill the resurgence of hope, vitality and new life in all its wondrous and diverse glory!

A beautiful, image filled poetic depiction Kathy!
