Poetry to Inspire

Day six of National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) – “I challenge you to write a valediction. This is a poem of farewell.”

COME SPRING

 Farewell to bare, dead-looking trees,

though I appreciate their true shape.

I look forward to leaves of green

adorning each landscape.

 

Farewell to long, dark, cold nights,

though I like to snuggle in.

I look forward to bright, cheerful days

and new life that will begin.

 

Farewell to chilling temperatures,

though snowy days can be fun.

I look forward to being outdoors more

enjoying heat from our sun.

 

Farewell to birds migrating north,

though I know you’re just passing through.

I look forward to your return in fall

when seeking warmth is what you’ll do

 

Farewell to wondering what I’ll do,

though I like to sit and ponder.

I look forward to all the joys of spring

and my inner urge to wander.
