Salute to Spring Inspired by delightful duo, Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire …


Come outside! Wile away the first mild day,

welcome warmest months with the softest kiss,

the freshest caress: Air’s Astaire squeeze play.

Swing time, Spring; your navy, my pale blue bliss

under baby blue blanket sky. Goose flesh!

Loving this. Daytime dusted with powder

clouds in white gauze wisps, while cheeks-to-cheeks mesh

beak to beak; bare limbs' breeze; rhythms louder

than long we’ve heard, the music of life stirs

beasts and birds in swing-sway syncopation;

symphonic song bursts for dance connoisseurs,

You and I, our debonair flirtation—

Top Hat’s off to One Who made us this way—

Crazy for this Existential Ballet.

Great sonnet! You've captured the exhilarating feeling the season brings through the use of music and dance -- just perfect, and who better to bring on that Fred and Ginger! Great work, Helga.

Spring is
when the birds sing;
when the rain showers;
when the wind swirls;
and the trees dance;
and the flowers sway
the tippy-toe ballet.

Standing clapping this was sheer delight lively like spring.
"Swing time, Spring; your navy, my pale blue bliss
Under baby blue blanket sky. Goose flesh!
Loving this. Daytime dusted with powder
Clouds in white gauze wisps; cheek-to-cheek mesh,
Beak to beak; bare limbs breeze; rhythms louder
Than long we’ve heard; the music of life stirs
Beasts and birds in swing-sway syncopation; "

Superb sonnet. Befitting a unique couple of dancers
that will never be surpassed. I loved every dance I
ever saw them do! They truly were a once in a lifetime
pair!I really like the treatment you gave this poem
Helga, very dashing and elegant, as were they!
