Vernal wizardry
A solitary singer
In guise of herald
Breathless before such beauty
I stand in silence spellbound

For Colleen’s poetry challenge

  1. This time of year, we get the brilliant singing of the Carolina wren. They are a joy to listen to. A true miniature herald and amazingly loud, too!

    The call of the Carolina Wren sounds as though it is saying ‘visitor, visitor, visitor’. Enjoyed the poem as well.

    Beautiful, Sue! Spring’s arrival is such a welcome relief after the winter, it does make us stop and marvel at its magnificence.
    Spring is popping out all over here at last! The trees are starting to come out, spring flowers are blooming, shrubs are popping with leaves and blooms. The birds are out and singing cheery songs. Our temps have moderated and the spring rains have set the stage for Spring’s arrival.


  4. Gorgeous, Sue. 🙂
