First Blades of Grass Turning Green

Finding those first blades of grass turning green
Cheering spring sun strong on southern slopes
Little streams filled of snowmelt runs so clean
Bring feelings we have that govern our hopes

Long before the first swelling buds open
On my face feeling warmth of a fresh breeze
When the color of a blue sky deepen
With a promise this season guarentees

Walk with me down past those tattered cattails
Coming apart like old cushion pillows
Tossing out the last decaying hay bales
Where the smoke from an old grass fire billows

When an end of old winter scene does make
Clumps of dead grass clog the combs on my rake

Thanks Maxeen The world is filled with many remarkable sights and sounds and smells and few more powerful than during the advance of spring....so powerful is the force of life overtaking death symbolized by the grass...wonder what Whitman would say? cool

I am so looking forward to the full advance of spring in these cold climes. Our winter in New England was mild this season. I almost think the snowman will be added to the endangered species list soon...haha.
