Frost of yesterday bids a fond farewell,
flowering florals emit a fragrant smell.
Snow once accumulated in massive mounds,
forms reflective puddles along the ground.
Temperatures rise, pedestrians shed their cloaks,
abandoning layers, like oxen freed from yokes.
Traces of greenery grow vibrant and true,
grass glistens, glowing with transparent drops of dew.
Sunshine splendor overtakes a sleeping Earth,
Spring has arrived, bringing a world of rebirth!

My name is Jennifer Roche. I’m a published poet and author living in the United States of America. I have had two other poems previously posted on your site in the past, but that was awhile ago. I enjoy reading the wonderful poetry other talented poets have created and feel your site is so beneficial to writers everywhere! As someone living in the North American reign where Spring is slowly making its appearance now, I felt it appropriate to write a poem giving Winter a proper send off. I chose to write this poem in rhyming couplets to create a smooth, rhythmic, flow, that was light, and airy, mirroring the Springtime vibe. Enjoy!
