Ode to Spring – A poem

Tulips with rosy faces in gardens blush

Their petals color the landscape like nature’s paintbrush.

Thundering Spring clouds,

herald the ancient call to till the rows

As farmers pray for ploughs

And for rain from heaven’s windows.

As if in response, sudden Spring showers,

water brooks and streams and flowers.

All nature stand in awe of one of the world’s greatest kindness –

The Earth awakening from self-imposed darkness.

Ah! Spring, your gifts are plenty:

Food to refresh the body,

Balconies of blooms for the soul’s delight,

And, your silent splendor

reminds us that,

at least once every year,

we receive the beauty that we Hope for.
