Spring a ling!

Spring Crocuses

Spring a ling!
Hear spring sing;
Flower bells ring:
Spring a ling!
Spring a ling!
Spring a ling!

Note: We’re hearing it! A few days above 50 and a vast flood of snow melt is all the encouragement these little hardy crocuses needed. My lucky neighbor already has blooms. I hope you’re enjoying National Poetry Month. I am participating in Poetry Friday, organized by Kidlitosphere Central andΒ hosted this week by Laura Purdie Salas atΒ Writing the World for Kids. She has lots of great tips for reading poetry to kids.

  2. It’s now Saturday, and the sun was out all day. I believe we have overcome winter! (Although it practically did us in.) So happy that you’re celebrating with crocuses. Their pert little blossoms always make me happy.

  3. Brenda, I’m glad to see you’ve become a regular member of the Poetry Friday family! Looks like your crocuses (croci???) are doing better than ours…we had a few ready to pop up and then we got hit with 3 inches of snow and ice. Poor things never knew what hit ’em!

  4. I saw some crocuses in all their lavender glory at my oldest daughter’s house, Brenda. I like the idea of them “ting a ling-ing” also some hyacinths which had not blossomed yet. This sure was a cheery post and the photo so clear and beautiful, too.

      • Are you at a writer’s conference, on a blogging sabbatical or maybe a vacation? I hope you are happy, safe, warm, enjoying family and stimulating conversations, too. Hugs, Robin

        • My middle son bunged up his ankle, broken or sprained, they were unable to decide. I’ve lost two days now to long doctor visits. No time for commenting in my usual way. I never seem to catch up, but only to fall farther behind. I have been working on a 6 line poem today, on and off, as I’ve had 5 minutes. But I couldn’t finish. And now I’m too tired. I hope my poor mite is better soon. We may have to cancel our vacation if he still can’t walk next week. Oh, well. Peace and Joy, Brenda

  5. Unfortunately, spring has not yet arrived here in Ottawa, Canada. But the forecast is calling for milder weather this week-end. Maybe at last it will arrive?
