Prelude to The Heat Wave

PAD Challenge day 28: For today’s prompt, take the phrase “(blank) Wave,” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles include: “Tidal Wave,” “Next Wave,” “Friendly Wave,” “Heat Wave,” and/or “Sound Wave.”
(Playing a little Catch-up with the prompts)


Fixed upon the feet of Time
Daisy-dreams are dancing
We, weary of winter’s clime
Welcome spring’s romancing
Violet and daffodil
Strewed like gems upon the hill
Gone the gray and grating chill
Zephyrs come a-prancing

Strum the strings of green and gold
Bud unfolds the bower
Ring those petal-bells that hold
Beauty born of shower
Sing a simple song of mirth
To the Lord of Heav’n and earth
Death is refurbished with birth
Hope bears fruit and flower

Love and longing ebbs and flows
Lilacs lose their luster
Blush then, peony and rose
Pink as pink can muster
Teach us to be moment-glad
Make the most of what we have
Lest, while lost in what we had
Winds renew their bluster
