    AN OLD MAN’S SONG TO YOUTH AND SPRING

    April 3, 2020

    So day 3? Well, day 3. So today’s prompt is to write a poem with 10 sets of rhyming words fished out from RhymeZone.The words sets I took where-

    When, glen, fern

    Desire, fire, choir

    cherry, prairie, merry

    Cloud, enshroud, proud, loud

    pink, ink, think

    stream, dream, beam, cream

    Honey, sunny, funny

    Smile, profile, while

    wings, spring, things, spring

    .

    AN OLD MAN’S SONG TO YOUTH AND SPRING

    When red ripe cherries begin to bloom like desires,

    The glen, the prairies erupt into a coquettish fire

    Ferns nodding to the merry myrtle-and-chestnut choir

    Ah! Watch, that’s when the pretty spring girls come out to sing.

    .

    Clouds in capricious cotton-pink

    Enshroud the valley in their carnation ink

    Proud and silent like a woman who thinks

    But now watch the dainty spring girls come out to dance.

    .

    Dreams take to the sky in their colorburst wings

    Streams chase the soil like questions – never ending strings

    Cream pinafores and daffodils – ah, bless this spring.

    For I can watch the pretty spring girls come out to sing.

    .

    Funny how a despairing world changes its profile

    To sunny April face and dewdrop smiles

    This honey-hued dream of youth, how I shall miss in a while

    When I can’t watch once more – the dainty spring girls come out to dance.

    .

    I am inviting you all to join me in this venture. Use the prompt given above to craft your own verses.
    And oh, be sure to tag me.

    ETERNITIES WITHIN A MOMENT

    A dancer unwinds herself upon the stage. Something comes alive in that empty space – some fervent energy that vibrates with each move of the dancer. There is no remarkable audience watching her weave…
