blades of green

blades of green
rise from the brown
spreading all around
soon to be
sprinkled with yellow
all aglow
in the sunshine

wings of gossamer
flit as they hover
in the air
before landing
amid the splendour
of the brightly hued décor
painted below

spiral tubes uncoil
gently injecting
delicate centres
feasting on one's nectar
then moving on
to another
repeating the action

buzzing sounds
fill the air
striped bodies appear
treading gently on petals
sipping nectar
to convert to honey
later fed to many

blades of green
swaying gently
caressed by
a soothing breeze
invoking a refreshing
and peaceful
feeling of ease

Sounds soothing Socrates. Oh how I long for the warm Spring days and their sounds. It has been a LONG WEARY WINTER! Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Greetings to you!

Here is one of the most beautiful
poems on Spring that I have met:

“The silver raindrops patter
upon the earth today
Tap Tap their knock is gentle
and this is what they say
O little flowers awaken
and open wide your doors
Come out in pretty dresses
for Spring is here once more”

I recall the above stated poem from
my primary school days.
I cannot remember the author.
I have seen a similar version
on the internet.

I wonder if anyone here can
help in naming the author

Never heard that lovely poem before but great to read now ..thanks for sharing it applause
