Song Of a Mild Spring-wild March Day





Brook-song babbles and meanders through the brawny hinterland
Mirth of sun-warm zephyr chuckles where winter withdraws its band
Hill and hollow, chilled and fallow, hint at tints we nigh forgot
As the dreamer sighs and eyes the beaming slope and garden-plot

Barren vault exalts the laughter of the crow perched proud and bold
On the tree-top primed with pockets bursting with springtime’s first-gold
Now the moorland is a-glitter with the farmer’s passion stirred
And the morning is a-titter with the twittering of birds

Sun and shadow skims the meadow like a gray-gold patchwork quilt
Wafting over panoramic vistas bereft of leaf-lilt
Still, the thrill of ages surges through the onlooker once more
Where the ill of frigid splurges recedes to a far-off shore

Choristers of spring’s glad choir warm their voices, clear their throats
Long these song-soldiers have waited, shivering in threadbare coats
Nature’s Maestro draws His baton soft across the budded string
Holy, holy, hear the anthem of ten-thousand minstrels ring
