Because it’s spring time…a  Triversen poem



At the start of spring sunshine
in March, a clamour occurs,
an ignominious din.

She sees the lambs born
on a cool sunny morn, stumble;
bumble, late in the daylight.

The sun rises at four,
red, ruby, gold glows up high
and christens the new-born babes.

It comes round, it goes around,
it returns on this morning
of joy, of hope, of new lives.

  5. Polly, after another of my accustomed “winter grey” breaks, this is the perfect re-introduction to your writing. Thanks for a breath of Spring! Here in Wisconsin, we are enjoying a faux Spring… which is not necessarily a healthy indicator of environmental concerns. Looks like a long, hot, dry summer ahead.

    But you know? I read your poem and it all seems a bit more bearable. And that’s what good writing is all about! Thanks, Amy

    • Hiya Amy – great to see you posting again – those grey winters are giving way to spring sunshine and on the day I posted ‘Lamb’ it was so beautiful I felt it fitting to celebrate 🙂 x
