Powers of Spring

Bring on the frog songs.

Keep me awake with their whir.

Bring on the fresh greens.

Call up the scents of the earth.

Bring on the blossoms, each glory a challenge.

Bring on the nesting swallows, acrobats of cliffs and barns.

Bring on the hummingbirds, tiny, buzzing kazoos.

Bring on the silent-winged moths

who cling for days to my door.

Bring on the early sunrises and long twilights.

Craze me with signs of spring.

Enrapture me with your glamour.

I am ready for you, Blooming Persephone,

with words and songs,

longing to be reunited.

Bring on the green powers of spring.
