This little poem is for a comp on My Writers Circle

I expect it will be torn to pieces and decried as cleche there, here I hope it warms the heart and has you looking forward to spring

The Brief was to write a poem prompted by the picture

Awake at last

**********

The willow stick

The Gardener snipped

Snow slipped

Ice dripped

********

The thaw had begun

Morning sun

Warms natures lung

Young buds sprung

*******

Not yet here

But spring is near

New life peers

Through frozen tears

******

Carpet of Bluebells

Early spring themselves

March in wooded dell

Vibrant blues ranks swell

*****

Crocus and Daffodil

Adorn lawn and hill

Brightly happy and still

Content in shivering chill

****

Blackbirds hop

From snowy spot

Robin and Tit swap

Twigs they sit atop

***

Song Thrush

Run and rush

Crisp morning hush

Listens for a grub so lush

**

Willowy fingers

Winter lingers

Flowers, joy bringers

Birds, springs singers

*

Natures' sleep near past

She awakens at last

From winters icy blast

Spring approaches fast
