It is the morning of another year
here in this temperate European land
while over in the Southern hemisphere
Autumn descends upon the scorching sand.
The new-day light entreats me go outside
while chatter of the birds also invites;
the song of nature echoes far and wide
and bids me join this dance of spring delights.
Each year remakes itself, old skins are shed
upon the freeze-thaw weathered winter ground
a tentative spring bloom raises its head
to seek the sunlight, from dark earth unbound:
And like the year, I find myself anew
when I think both upon this spring, and you.

Thank you for taking part in Sonnet Sunday!
I don’t know about you, but I feel renewed by all this Easter poetry! Thanks especially to all those who submitted poems to be included in this Easter celebration. It has been a fine day to celebrate one of my favourite poetic forms, the sonnet. I am planning another at the beginning of next month on the theme of ‘Mayday.’ Look out for further announcements!
