The Spring, A Poem By L.A.Steel

I wrote this poem in the Spring of 2001, and first published it in The Voice News Paper that  year and published it in my book of poems, Cantos of a Believer, displayed on this website, see the top menu. I wish the world a wonderful Spring.

THE SPRING,     2001


Robins return from winter nests

as spring winds blow warm over sun bright seas

of meadow flowers reaching upwards into blue.

Jealous Winter warns of Spring

as the violent time of changing,

when rivers overflow their banks

and mudslides ruin winter landscapes.

Winter screams its great March winds

that threaten cold and April snows,

then fade as haunting echoes

and morning frost melting in the rain.

What resonates true is the voice of Spring drawn

from thawing brooks and greening mountains,

birds singing as flowers dance

in brilliant colors with fragrant breezes.

Calendars are turned a page

revealing the blossoms of May.

Aries and Taurus begin their fight

until defeated by Gemini.

Goaded by the ram and teased by the twins

the bull and poet resist their yokes of winter and fall,

and are moved only by passion resisting change.

They wait the year in faith for the return of their season,

the lush hues of green in the warm light of May ,

when the poet writes of love

and the bull mates,

as the world is reborn in Spring.
