Spring speaks in poems~~

There's a flower blooming.

An unassuming plume of pink

As generous as a baby's grin

And just as captivating,

This is newborn spring!

The bees are bumbling.

Tumbling over blossoms,

They, too, are thirsty

For the first sweet sip of spring.

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. ~Rainer Maria Rilke

Oh! I love your poems Ruth. "...As generous as a baby's grin..." - what an awesome line and what an image it presents.
And this too: "...For the first sweet sip of spring."
It is so warm here; the grass is a lush green, the trees are leafing out and the cherry blossoms blooming; ooh-la-la!
Beautiful photos as always my friend.

Lovely lovely, both photos and poems - how apt is that Rilke quote!

Beautiful photography and writing Ruth. Such delicate pinks and blues in your post. Don't you just love bees bumbling and tumbling? I know I do.

I subscribe to your blog and this post marks the first occasion that I've actually commented. Your enthusiasm for April is so infectious that I just couldn't help but recall the spring here in India as well, two months ago.
Its a dead summer here with temperatures rising to 113 F but spring always makes me wish it gets sunnier and sunnier.

Your poems and photos are as nice as spring itself! Beautiful, Ruth!

It makes me wish Spring would last all year :)

Ruth, first of all I must say: Nice to meet you! I'm Sandra, from Brazil. I'm also a teacher and I like writing, literature and poetry as well. I've been so impolite. I've been following your posts since I first put my eyes on your blog, but the truth is that I had never introduced myself. You're a very good writer, and we have a lot of things in common... I was a litte ashamed because I'm not confident about my English. But today when I saw your comment in my blog, I decided to face my shyness and here I am.
I hope we can share a friendship from now on. By the way, I don't write poems although I love them.I just can't, so I read them...
Thanks for your comment and forgive me my mistakes.
