A Spring time Poem by Lady Jan

The Earth Laughs
a poem
by Lady Jan

Roots waken in the gloom,
reach and stretch for more room,
looking for nutrients to consume.
Tickled the Earth laughs to the moon.

Blossoms open sending out their sweet scent.
Bees buzz sweet talk the flowers with an accent.
To pollinate all the trees is the farmers intent.
And the Earth laughs content.

Robins and sparrows chirp and sings.
Killdeers drag a pretend broken wings.
Mocking birds sing every things.
The Earth laughs at these things.

Daffodils shore their sunny faces,
Crocus, Tulips, and Hyacinths appear in some places.
Yellow, lavender, scarlet, and blue many a garden graces.
The Earth laughs delighted in those places.

Trees unfurl leaves to the fullest percent.
Children climb trees and hopefully without accident.
Bouquet of flowers are gathered for moms a present.
And the Earth laughs to the fullest extent.

Hi Megz_mum,

Thank you. I'm not much of a poet and I wrote this poem in two days, but I'm glad you liked it.

Your Lady Jan~

Not a comment, a HUGE thank you for the wonderful magnet and coaster (in my favorite purples and greens with my also-favorite lush Roman grape and vine motif)! You are so sweet, and it was a wonderful welcome-home present. Thank you so much, Jan!

Hi Tina,

Welcome home!

The pictures on the coaster and the magnet are things grown right here in my home town of Madera. In fact the land right around my house was a grape vinard until my landlord pulled them out, and now we live in a baby almond orchard which are the blooms on the magnet (I think it's the magnet).

Enjoy!
Your Lady Jan~
