From Christine Valters Paintner at Abbey of the Arts: A Poetry Party. “Your invitation is to write an Ode to Springtime or other poetic way of honoring the gifts and call of the season.  Write a poem in celebration of the earth’s and soul’s turning toward the time of blossoming.”

I delight in Spring
Dew on the new grass
Bird song in the air
Floral fragrances wafting in the wind
First fruits sweet on my tongue
Raindrops wetting my skin

The Spirit whispers in Spring
Spring for new life
Spring for new hope
Spring for a new year

I was born in Spring
I gave birth in Spring
I delight in Spring
