MARCH
by Emily Dickinson

Dear March, come in!
How glad I am!
I looked for you before.
Put down your hat-
You must have walked-
How out of breath you are!
Dear March, how are you?
And the rest?
Did you leave Nature well?
Oh, March, come right upstairs with me,
I have so much to tell.



BIRD SONGS

Oh, there's music in the forests
And there's music in the glen,
As the birds are warbling greetings
To the spring that's come again.

All their piping is so merry
That the woodlands seem to ring,
With the praises of the birdsongs
For the coming of the spring.
Join the joyous woodland chorus
And raise high your voice in cheer,
Join the birdsongs in thanksgiving
For the springtime of the year!

Original Post
Dandelion

There was a dandelion,
With lovely, fluffy hair,
That glistened in the sunshine,
And in the summer air.
And oh! This pretty dandelion
Soon grew old and grey,
And, sad to tell! Her charming hair,
Blew many miles away.

I am having problems with the computer this morning, hope you get the reply.

Spring is here Clapalthough it is quite cold in this part of the world. The sun is bright and promises warmer weather to come.

Thank you for the nice and funny images, and the reminder that spring is here. It feels more like winter.

The warm gale blows suddenly from the south. It is getting warmer and warmer after we have 'HARU-ICHIBAN'. We feel cheerful without any reasons and want to go out for a walk. New buds are beginning to appear.

Blue-Sky Morning
Adelaide B. Shaw

It's a blue-sky morning
With a wind that blowing fair.
It's a blossom-blowing morning.
There are springbuds in the air.

It's a gold-sky morning
With a sun that's blazing bright.
It's an eye-blinking morning.
There's a blaring brilliant light.

Oh the cheerful budding time
When thorn-hedges turn to green;
When the new leaves of elm and lime
Cleave and shed their winter screen;
Tender lambs are born and baa,
North wind finds no snow to bring,
Vigorous nature laughs Haha
In the miracle of spring.

Bloom in grace!

At first there was silence
as if Nature held her breath
in thrilling peacefulness,
before raising her voice
to chant the glory
of creation.

Then a deep long sound
accompanied the awakening,
vibrating and echoing
throughout the air,
caressing the bare ground
and the naked trees.

Now every infinitesimal particle
of every tiny seed
answers the divine call
becoming part of the orchestra,
starting the growth of buds,
of blades of grass and of leaves.

A balmy breeze joins the tune
making the world dance
in feverish creativity.
All of life is invited to celebrate
renewal and rebirth,
Our hearts are invited too.

Universal beauty unfolds
while the message of Spring
is diffused by Nature
and by all of its creatures.
Souls merge in deep devotion
and sing the song of Love.

For just a while be still and listen!
Synchronize your breath
with the heartbeat
and with the breath of Universe!
Answer the call
and bloom in grace!



I just listened and felt inspired to write these words.
Love and joy.

All things shall melt and turn into songs when Spring comes. Even the stars, the vast snowflakes that fall slowly upon the larger fields, shall melt into singing streams. When the sun of His face shall arise above the wider horizon, then what frozen symmetry would not turn into liquid melody?

Thank you for bringing back this thread Vicky.

That was a lovely idea to bring this beautiful thread back!
Today we went outside of Rome and I took some pictures of this beautifully blooming tree.

I asked the Spring
leaves...

"Why do you cling?"

And the answer later falls to
me...in autumn shades of
wonder.

Spring has finally arrived and I thought it might be nice to bring back this beautiful thread.

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.

Pretty soon we will be able to have a wonderful walk like this.

This is the most beautiful season.



It hasn't quite arrived yet, but soon. Enjoy every moment because it's presence is very brief.

Thank you Sue for bringing back this thread.
It is still a bit cold here today, but my early spring flowers are blooming, and they will always be beautiful.
This is my favourite season. Everything is delicate and fresh.

It's loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness.

It is still a bit cold here, and I am dreaming of warm spring weather and all the beauty that it brings.

Many things

cherry blossoms.

I am already seeing the beginning of this.



At the moment there are just the green leaves and the closed buds, but it is getting quite warm and it has been raining, all of which will soon give us a lot of colour.

Spring Quiet

Christina Rossetti (1847)


Gone were but the Winter,
Come were but the Spring,
I would go to a covert
Where the birds sing.

Where in the whitethom
Singeth a thrush,
And a robin sings
In the holly-bush.

Full of fresh scents
Are the budding boughs
Arching high over
A cool green house:

Full of sweet scents,
And whispering air
Which sayeth softly:
“We spread no snare;

“Here dwell in safety,
Here dwell alone,
With a clear stream
And a mossy stone.

“Here the sun shineth
Most shadily;
Here is heard an echo
Of the far sea,
Though far off it be.”

How wonderful each thing is
that I look at, but springtime
goes away.

Sadly, spring does go away, all too soon.

When I open the door in the morning, everything is fresh and covered with springtime dew.



Eleanor Farjean

Morning Has Broken

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the word

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day
