Celebrating National Poetry Month #8: Abecedarian


an abecedarian


Concerto for Early Spring


After winter

Bulbs began to awaken

Crocus do the maiden voyage

Despite the snow.

Ever hardy daffodils emerge,

Forsythias' buds begin to swell

Giving us hope for early spring.

How long before we till the earth?


Ice still covers the pond,

Just a bit of snow remaining in the garden plot,

Knowing birds are now being sighted,

Longer days begin,

Morning sun has shifted,

Nests will soon be constructed

Over the wedding garden.

Presiding over the concerto the

Quail quickly cross the road,

Robins look for worms,

Starlings return to their same house

Too high to tempt the cats.

Until this season arrives

Very soon I hope

We'll sit by the fire

X-tremely excited for a change while

Yearning for shades of yellow and green

Zigzagging through the yard.
