Early Spring in my Hometown Poem By Ultimatepanicqueen May 2016

Early Spring in my Hometown Poem

A backdrop of frost nearly gone
As the daffodils laugh gleefully
And conduct winter’s requiem

Drops of life giving dew glistening
On the early morning spider webs

The slenderness of the stem
Of the blooming Narcissus
In the nearby field

The weeping willows
Sipping from the backyard pond

Old painted walls
With climbing ivy reaching skyward

The smell of lilac bushes
Wafting through the air

Spying the blooming dogwood
From the bedroom window

Tree frogs in the woodland pond
Amid the floating lily pads

Cherry blossoms
floating effortlessly
On the gentle wind

Dragonflies flitting
Through the rainbows
Of the the backyard sprinkler

The empty swing on the back porch
Slowly creaking to the breeze

Bright yellow rain boots
For rainy day puddles

The light chatter of squirrels
Running amuck

A baby robin on the edge of the nest
Flapping it’s tiny wings

Songbirds circling the bandstand
In the middle of town

The paper birch trees
Swaying to the music

The florist outside
Watering her plants and the sidewalk

Music and laughter
Coming out of the shops

Old men and their cigars
Gossiping
Under the store canopies

All of this going on
While the sweetest little girl
Dressed in her Sunday best
Blows away the dandelions’ fluff
And giggles.
