Every season sings a song.


The bells and sorrows

of winter

clang on and on.


But if Frost was right,

they, too, only last so long.


Stepping on

the turf of spring,


new birds fill their lungs,

have their say,

and hope renews that


nothing blue can stay.

Happy National Poetry Month!


Frost’s poem



  1. Sometimes less is more, and never more so than with this beautiful, brief poem of yours. I took the link to the Frost poem and now I understand First Aid Kit's song "Stay Gold" much better.


    PS--here is the song if you want to hear it.

  2. Lovely and full of hope! Love it.😊


Thank you for your thoughts!
