In The Sleepy Forest

~*Marge Tindal*~

Quietly the Winter forest lay sleeping
hushed in the morning dew
Blanket-of-night was tossed aside
by Spring sunbeams breaking through~

Alarming shrill of Mocking Bird
shrieking a wake-up call
While Red, Red Robin joins in merriment
bob-bob-bobbing along~

Grandfather Oak can take a joke
though his leaves came tumbling free
His new finery of Spring attire
will set the forest green with envy ~

Squirrels in scurry-hurry
swish of tails in frantic applause
ferreting out the acorns hidden
with tiny little paws~

Warm winds rustle the undergrowth
deep in the forest bed
Wake up !Wake up !
Spring is about ...
Get up you sleepyheads~

All things fauna and fowl
begin a curious yawning
Spring has sprung - Winter is gone
The sleepy forest breathes
on a new Spring-dawning~

Hon - this has my heart jumping for joy. Spring cannot come to New England soon enough. But until it does, thanks to your wonderful words and imagery, I have this to keep me going. Hugs, Marti

How your work gives me such a big smile, not unlike the coming of spring and the Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes of Texas

Fool, said my Muse to me, look in thy heart and write.

Marge, Beautifully put. I could see the awakening.

Were not attained by sudden flight,

Were toiling upward in the nigh

Gosh, I just received a notice that this one has been printed out and will be used for a poetry group discussion at their next meeting over on the Florida West Coast~

How wonderful to know that my words are shared with others~

Many thanks to Jane for her participation in her group and for wanting to share 'me'~
