Welcome to our spring poems - here's a few
pieces of poetry that
celebrate this wonderful time of year.
by Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889)
Nothing is so beautiful as spring -
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush's eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.
What is all this juice and all this joy?
A strain of the earth's sweet being in the beginning
In Eden garden.--Have, get, before it cloy,
Before it cloud, Christ, lord, and sour with sinning,
Innocent mind and Mayday in girl and boy,
Most, O maid's child, thy choice and worthy the winning.
A Prayer in Spring
We take joy in the green leaves and the blossoming
Soon the plants will grow and harvest time is coming.
We take joy in the buds and verdant green,
Soon the warmth will clothe the land.
We take pleasure in the return of the swallows,
the skies filled with birds of the air.
This earth once again produces it's miracle,
life born out of death, the miracle of Springtime.
and finally, something written by Robert Louis Stevenson,
When April skies begin to frown,
And the cold rain comes pelting down,
We must not grumble nor complain,
Nor idly say, we hate the rain.
God sends the rain; the dust-y ground
It softens in the fields around;
The moisture every plant receives,
And springs afresh in flowers and leaves.
Should God forbid the showers to fall,
Nor send us any rain at all,
The ground would all grow hard and dry,
And every living plant would die.
All things would starve and perish then--
No food for birds, nor beasts, nor men;
Then do not murmur, nor complain,
God, in His goodness, sends the rain.
