  • Two Views on Spring

    Hope Springs

    Spring is hopeful.

    It doesn't mean to be.

    The thrusting greenery

    doesn't ask for clemency.

    It's just a call for stay

    in executing eternity.

    Spring Song

    "More bird song.

    Pour it on!"

    In their optimism

    I am carried along

    and my pessimism

    might be washed away

    if I sing like they

    do, greeting the day.

    "...a call for stay in executing eternity..." I like that sentiment Johntee . I must have missed this first time around too. Perhaps I should be starting from the BOTTOM of the page next time since things move along so quickly. I do wish an admin would block wangpen - I can't.

      A user account which posts spam about wooden flooring, sometimes up to 10 or more times a day. amenOra and I try to keep up with deleting them as they show up, but the repeated posts have the effect of pushing everyone else's posts down the queue so that things get missed more easily from poets who post regularly. I don't have permissions to block that account, or I would.

      Re: wangpen - I've flagged those posts a couple of time and must admit left the site in frustration one day when I saw more - I share your frustration Paula

    it doesn't mean to be, there is no pretence, it simply is.

    oh, that mankind could be like spring
