Today Joy Lennick shares two poems about spring as it emerges from the frosty winter.


A dozen arboreal snow maidens
grace our concrete street:
like virginal brides –
some blushing –
confetti at their feet.

Shivering in the early Spring freeze,
genuflecting in the icy breeze,
they bravely bear
Mother Nature’s whims –
and to beauty all are hymns.


An ethereal curtains rises,
a feathered chorus orchestrates.
Enter Spring – her grand debut –
veiled by dew-dropped, cob-webbed lace.

Crowned with gold forsythia,
yellow trumpets show respect.
Earth’s treasure-chest is opening,
all creatures genuflect.

Each Spring I have a love affair,
wonder at her yearly flair,
and at her feet I leave a prayer
for all the beauty dwelling there.
