Spring is in the Air: Sangeeta Sharma

Sangeeta Sharma

As Ogden Nash says,

Praise the spells and bless the charms,

I found April in my arms.”


I agree as I find this April morn

Sunny and cloudy - magically

Spring in all its glory…

Rambling through a Canadian trail in the stunning sunset hours, a rendezvous

With Nature’s bounty!

A dappled sky and the touch on the visage of the clean breeze crispy

Chirks up the body.

A gentle, recently-thawed lake’s undulating water on one side meandering

With long dry autumnal shrubs to enflamed hue changing

Graceful pair of geese with long upright necks the waters from the watery edges overseeing

Their high-pitched squeaks of the geese with the brood in a V-shape returning

The snow-covered patch - jade till yesterday,

Has now livened up with attractive pink dandelions striking

An American Robin like a mendicant in meditation perched atop a leafless tree

Singing mellifluously

Soars your spirit as if in a Paradise.

To conclude with the great English bard, William Shakespeare:

When proud-pied April, dressed in all its trim

Hath put a spirit of youth in everything.”
