When Spring Announces Its Arrival

Unlike Autumn, Spring sneaks in all quiet like.

Without the rumble and howling,

the shuddering treetops

and whirlwinds of copper confetti.

You don’t really notice the green arriving

until it’s clinging to every tree

every blade of grass,

and even the land

is singing.

Quadrilles have to be one of my favourite poets forms at the moment, they’re just so much fun to write. If you want to join in just click the link above and check out the wonder that is the dVerse Poets Pub. All you have to do for tonight’s challenge is write a poem of exactly 44 words and use ‘green’ somewhere in it. Make sure to check out the other poets taking part and let them know you’ve dropped by their posts.

  1. I must say spring is taking her sweet time to come finally ~ Love it when the whole land is singing green ~ Thanks for joining us Carol ~

  2. Nobody told spring in my part of the world to hold off on wind! It’s been a bit horrific. But then we’ve also had rain, which is a godsend for our drought-stricken high desert.

  3. We never have spring here in PH but your words brought the season close to me. It somewhat reminds me of the budding flowers of May. ^^
