to dance with trees – constanza

I listen as the sunrays play
in March when days are growing long
on harpsichord a honeyed song

I watch the trees that gently sway
like waving arms they reach the sky
cerulean silk that please my eye

as swallows fly in spring ballet
they dance ‘mong cotton candy clouds
undress our nature’s somber shroud

I sip the southern wind’s bouquet
a taste of orchard’s in the air
the spring has flowers in her hair

to colorize the winter’s gray
beneath the lilies burst in bloom
and gone is winter’s sooty gloom

I listen as the sunsrays play
I watch the trees that gently sway
as swallows fly in spring ballet
I sip the southern wind’s bouquet
to colorize the winter’s gray

Kerry, has us to write a Constanza today at imaginary gardens with real toads. Very nice and fun form, that I never tried before.

  1. I love the spring’s arrival with flowers & lilies blooming ~ Hopefully the southern wind is coming soon ~ Happy weekend ~

  2. This has a wonderful light-hearted rhythm, Bjorn, aided by your choice of the -ay rhyme. I love your imagery of Spring – each stanza has something to offer.

  3. Oh, you have done a great job. Imagery and feeling, all in unison with your beautiful words.
