Spring Hast Come Slowly

spring hast come slowly

written by: jsburl

 

the morning sun rises
in all its splendor
dusky rose colored clouds
tinting the world…
but from the west comes
an ominous dark wall
high above the land closing fast
rain drops begin to descend
softly
gently
tears
from heaven
to caress the soul
sultry as smoke
a wall of rain approaches
a deluge
to wash away
winter’s last clutches
quickly the last pockets
of snow slide away
uncovering the gray of
stone fences long
covered
soon will come
the green of spring
yet all there is today
are a few jonquils
hyacinths.
crocuses
and soon iris
spring’s promise
renewed
quickly the rain passes
leaving all shiny in its wake
as the swallows come out
in all their glory
to swoop
and dance
with the wind
afternoon falls
darkness descends
and the snow
once again
begins to fall
so i sigh
dreaming
of the sun’s warmth
as i wait
for the dawn
anew
