Spring is Coming

Spring will be here in a couple weeks. The days are getting longer again and the weather is getting warmer. The flowers and trees will be budding soon and then summer will be here before we know it! I haven’t written or shared any poetry in a while and I felt like sharing my favorite poem about spring. This was poem written by the amazing and talented Emily Dickinson. It is titled “A Light Exists in Spring”. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period –
When March is scarcely here

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.

Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay –

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament.

Although spring is not my favorite season, I do really enjoy the warmer weather. Getting to see life return to the earth is a beautiful thing too. If I’m being honest here, winter is actually my favorite season. I love it the most because of the gentle, soft beauty of snow and the idea of bundling up in a warm blanket by the fire or just in my bed to read or watch movies on my iPad. I love wearing warm sweaters and cardigans and fuzzy socks and boots. Feeling warm and cozy after coming in from walking around in the chilling snow is my favorite feeling. Walking outside in the snow and feeling the crunch under my boots excites me. The chilly feeling you get on the tip of your nose after being outside for a while and the crisp, clean smell of the air calms me and makes me feel happy.

Winter is pretty great, but sadly all things must come to an end. Spring is coming and it’ll be good for a change. Have a wonderful week everyone! 🙂

Spring is Coming!
