MURMUR ME SPRINGTIME

Time for Quadrille #50 at dVerse,
the topic word “murmur“.   My
muse seems to be on sabbatical of
late.  Perhaps she, too, is weary
of Winter!

**************














murmur me Springtime
sing softly green
whisper golden daffodils
mumble distant shower approaching 
mutter raindrops on my window 
excite me with earth’s fragrance
immerse me in soft forest sounds
sprinkle me with some stardust  
surround me with bird song
soothe my winter-weary soul

  3. This is indeed how spring finally appears after a long winter, in bits and small showings that lead up to a crescendo of renewal.

  4. oh yes....the murmurs of spring. Would that its tread be a bit heavier and quicker in Boston! Through the ice patches on our sidewalk a little sun must pass :)

  7. It sounds like Spring is in full bloom with all her chorus, murmuring, muttering, mumbling and all. A musical treat!

  10. I agree with De about the soft verbs! Lots of gentle sound and movement in your Quadrille, Bev; it's raindrop-fluid and spring-scented!

  11. Ooh, lovely images of spring, although I can't say my soul's winter-weary. To the contrary, we need an extended winter into June this year or we'll be crying come wildfire season!
