“Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.”


Robert Frost




Now is truly the time


To emerge from hibernation


And smell the fragrant new blooms


Now is truly the time


To frolic in a greening meadow


And escape your confined room



Now is the time


To welcome the songbirds


Back to your patio bird station


Now is the time


To gaze in awe and admiration


Observing new life with elation



Now is the time


To put on your hiking boots


And climb a sun-drenched hillside


Now is the time


To eagerly take in the view


With your dog by your side



Now is the time


To wander into the woods


Refreshing your heart and soul


Now is the time


To truly look and listen


At all the wonders to behold




Do you believe in magic?

 Believe in the magic that can set you free


Believe in the Magic of Spring





©2006, Ed Kostro

The season of rebirth seems to affect us as well. I am delighting in the new shoots that are emerging from the seeds I planted and all of my plants that died back during winter flourishing once again. I will have roses in a couple weeks...I can't wait!!! Beautiful poem of the season, Ed.
Take care,

I think most of us believe Ed...but just to confirm it's Spring here in the UK, it snowed today and it's been a real cruddy weather since...ho hum; there's something about spring flowers with a touch of snow...sadly I think it's a scene thats going to be all too familiar in the future. Excellent write my friend.

Yes, I believe in this splendid magic with all my heart! This poem is indeed like a breath of fresh, fragrant, musical air, dear Ed. And it is a pleasure to read your poetry again!
Love&Light* to you and yours,

I agree with Kate below's a question of belief...:)
I echo her belief !
I love the Robert Frost quote, he is a particular favourite of mine, especially this one

"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. "

The picture of the cock sparrow is beautiful !

Oh, I DO believe, LE! I really do!

The positive atmosphere in this made me sing inside... now I'm singing "outside" too! Just stepped out, entirely influenced by your powerful/giddy poem.

"To frolic in a greening meadow
And escape your confined room"

This sent me to the balcony door and out into the air. Sigh... thanks for the "wake-up." No "confined room" for me today! Wheeeee... katy xox

Now is the time to breath new life into our lungs as God gives his all to decorate this earth so beautifully. Your poem is a fresh start to this wonderful spring day!
Reviewed by Sandie Angel 4/9/2006
One has to believe in the magic of spring, as it enables us to see the nature's beauty. The feeling of weloming spring supersedes the sorrows in our lives.

One has to set aside the time and the season for oneself to feel good about everything.

Wonderful write, Ed!
