Day 987: Return of Spring

 Yes. I love this poem. Love, love, love! Welcome back Spring and hello April! :)

Spring - Linda Pastan

Just as we lose hope
she ambles in,
a late guest
dragging her hem
of wildflowers,
her torn
veil of mist,
of light rain,
her dandelion
in our ears;
and we forgive her,
turning from
chilly winter
we throw off
our faithful
and open
our arms.


  1. Lovely :-) I swear I used similar images in a blog post once, and yet I've never read the poem before now. Funny how things like that happen, isn't it? Like the images and ideas are already up there somewhere in the ether and every now and then we can grab one and pull at its kite-tail.

  2. Oh I know what you mean, has happened to me too! The synchronicity of creativity. Brilliantly baffling. What a lovely idea to think they're there for us, waiting for use. A kite tail - perfect! :)
