Friday Poetry: "Mistress of Seasons"

Hello friends! Just three days until Frozen Hearts is finished—ah, it's so close! I can't wait to share it with you all. But in the mean time, as you may have deduced from this post's title, I've decided to add a new section to the blog—Friday Poetry! Every Friday I'll share a new poem; I thought it would be a nice way to keep in touch with my love of poetry.

For today's post we have "Mistress of Seasons"Some of you might remember the poem I posted earlier, "Winter Kitten", and this is a bit of a companion to it. As always, constructive criticism is welcome! xx

 

Mistress of Seasons

The mistress of seasons
banishes winter
from her sight

she sheds her coat of snow
and awakens her sleeping animals
grows her hair long again
as the green leaves sprout

she lets the sun shine
and sends away the clouds
grows a soft blanket of flowers
to keep the her body warm

her voice
lives in the robin’s song
in the bees’ buzzing
in the drip-drip-drip of her cleansing rain

her joy
lives in the deer’s first uncertain steps
in the tree’s first flower bud
in the ducklings’ first swim

and you know she is here
when suddenly
unexpectedly
without warning

spring
arrives
