A Day for Celebration

This is a day for celebration
Open your heart and sing
Join the myriad of creation
Heralding the dawn of spring

This is a day of miracle-wonder
Immaculate repertoire
Ripple of zephyr and rolling of thunder
Tuning the landscape choir

This is the day of woodland-minstrels
Stories of nature’s rebirth
Open your eyes, nothing is minuscule
On this greatest day on earth

This is the day of rain-song and gold sun
Laughing on earth’s avenue
Fling back the curtain to Scene number one
Of spring’s 2012 debut

  1. Thank you Janet, for the poem and the beautiful photos!

  2. Hurra! It's (very nearly) spring. Your poem confirms it beautifully.

  3. This is a glorious song of Spring, Janet!! I love the image above, all the gray delicious layers. Simply beautiful.

  4. Your poem definitely fits my mood. I always love it when I can say 'spring' instead of 'winter.' Celebration IS in order.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
