Danse Death by Kaspar Meglinger

After a volcano eruption with winter lasting more than three years...


Looking for Spring

Looking for spring after all this time,
to see the green grass sprout from the slime,
of dead vegetation, so filthy with grime.

To see the wildflowers, burst into view,
transforming the dreary with colorful hue,
beside the still waters, reflecting the blue.

Sky above, be no longer so dark,
Sun, please break through and mark,
the advent of spring and the song of the lark.

Before it's too late and there's none of us left,
we've seen enough violence, hatred and death,
we've seen enough till we breathe our last breath.

Now, the sunshine must breakthrough at last,
or the human race will become a thing of the past,
to the last man standing with a bone in his grasp.

We've had enough of cold, dead, red meat,
we long for the plants to stop their retreat,
we long for something healthy and decent to eat.

We long for to herald a new bright shining day,
and break through this gloom as we pine a way,
with its clouds creased forehead still held at bay.

From the nightfall that came and won't go away,
please spring, come back… come back today.

Mankind should wake up just as the spring awakens with such beauty. We all need a bit of the spring! ~Best, Elizabeth

This poem makes me cry because if we don't love more Spring ceasing to be is possible. Thanks for the wake up call and your insight. This is a magnificent piece of poetry.

Spring sprang sprung!

Flowers all over da place!

Ron, your poem and intro give me a renewed appreciation for a favorite time of the year, spring. Three years without spring, what an emotional low that must be. Volcanic ash a mysterious villain to the ancients who had to endure its blanketing effect, blocking out the sunlight. Kate's appraisal of having to contend with those conditions are in line with my perceptions. No thank you! I wish you peace and love my dear friend, Jon Michael

nice poem, Ron. It suits the painting by Kaspar Meglinger. I thought they were ancient Greek heroes but then I saw they were skeletons. Cheers

So beautiful how you turned what looked like the changing of seasons to praying for hope for Man. Great write.

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 3/21/2012
Especially with your brief word of introduction, Ron, I'm exceptionally moved by this.... This is no ordinary spring following no ordinary winter... Pardon my iggorance, but does this refer to an historic event - like the volcano eruption in the mid 1800s which created darkness over Europe for a great many months? You really take me there in your verses and I'm horrified; there's no way I could survive, I'm sure. Drought I can get my head round - but not this! Thank you for making me think and for conjuring this scenario with such dread. xx

This is simply superb, Ron. I, too, am ready for Spring but not so looking forward to the blistery days of Summer which will be here too today I will enjoy the Spring, water my yard and plant some seeds. My fruit trees are filled with blossoms, such a beautiful sight. Today we are expecting 50 MPH winds, I am thinking I should cover the blossoms or they may be lost. Spring is such a fickle season, yesterday 74 degrees, today 51 degrees and tomorrow they are predicting snow...Spring is so silly, always playing tricks on me.
Take care,
