Sometimes in Spring
Sometimes in spring the dogwood
gives notice that its leaves
are ready to pop.
Sometimes in spring the song
of one robin is distinguishable
from all the others.
Sometimes in spring the hyacinth
releases it heady scent
warm and rousing.
Sometimes in spring
there is a day like today.
Don't miss it.
I found this in my files. It was dated April 17, 2009. Today's another day exactly like it!
Head over to Booktalking for the Round-Up, then, as my late mother used to say, "Go outside and blow the stink off you."
Tomorrow come back for the 14th day's addition to Irene Latham's April project, the 2012 Kidlitosphere Progressive Poem. Today, the Friday-the-13th line is being added by my artful friend, Tabatha.
Next Friday, the Poetry Friday Round-Up will be held right here at Random Noodling. It should be fun!
