Spring Poems by Dawn Pisturino

April Showers

I looked into the heavens

And saw the face of God.

He was a kindly gentleman

And not too very loud.

He wore a watch upon his vest

Which gave the time of day.

He looked at it: “The time has come,”

Was all he had to say.

And soon a gentle rainfall

Came from the April sky.

It kissed my wondering up-turned face

And poked me in the eye.

But then a very curious thing

Did happen at my feet.

A tiny flower sprouted up,

All blooming and complete.

It opened up its tiny leaves,

Embracing fast the rain,

And if I ever doubted God –

I never did again.

Spring

Spring! The vigor of new life soars in my veins!

I am free and alive and wonderful,

Free as the silly sparrow twittering in the tree-top,

Too gaily alive.

Alive as the new-sprung fountain of youth in the riverbed,

Which knows not that it is bound by grassy banks,

But runs down the waterway in a mad race for the finish.

And, wonderful as the tiny petals of a flower,

First opening up to the Father Sun

Like a virgin bride in the marriage bed.

Sun gives new life to the blood,

And blood gives new life to the body,

And the body gives new life to the soul,

Ad infinitum, ad infinitum, ad infinitum.

But every Spring plays its part as a new beginning,

And we never tire of the encore.

Robin Red-Breast

When Robin Red-breast comes to town,

All the children dance around,

Clapping hands and stamping feet,

Happy with their little treat!

  6. Oh Dawn your Spring poems are uplifting and take me back to Spring fever..Even though Costa Rica has no Spring, per se, it has two seasons: dry and rainy and the rainy season begins in April…. after months of, no rain..it is as welcome as a Spring shower and the dust settles, and the green gets greener and it feels like the tropics again..:):)

    • We get an extended winter and an extended summer here in the desert. We get about 2 days of actual spring and about the same for fall. But, I remember how lovely Spring was when I was a small child in Indiana. The flowers! The trees! The birds and butterflies! I was heart-broken when we moved to California. I hope you enjoy your rainy season, although I imagine it is hot and humid there. Thank you, dear friend, as always. Have a beautiful day.
