Put your ear to the air.

Tune your senses to the long rhythms…

The sun is daily higher,

It knocks harder on grave’s door:

Beneath in the icy ground,

Life warms from near death

Shudders and swells and pushes against

The things that would keep it cold:

Colour will our palettes fill

by Jem Croucher


As it’s sometimes quite disheartening
in short days of winter chill
A thing that will encourage
is that it isn’t long until
the warmer days that come with Spring
It’ll bring more light and mean
that we can turn away from grey
and see instead the green

A glimpse of yellow

by Jem Croucher


I caught a glimpse of yellow
in a hedgerow yesterday
It was quite unexpected
but it made me think “Hooray!”

Handful of yellow

by Jem Croucher


I had a handful of yellow
but I let it all go
and now I’ll not find it
’til Springtime I know
It was careless of me
for I had it right there
like a smile on the breeze
just ready to share

A pleasing distraction – sedoka

by Jem Croucher


On cold winter days
for a pleasing distraction
the thought of Springtime flowers

Caught on a warm breeze
to embellish me with their
wonderful fragrant bouquet

We brought a David Hockney print
and hung it on the wall
An early Christmas present
to be admired by one and all
It’s from a London retrospective
at the Royal Academy
to which just under four years past
we went, my wife and me

In winter I’m dormant
biding my time
But come Spring I emerge
when the weather is fine
Then I’ll mirror the sky
as my vibrant blue grows
when I blossom and flourish
and my true beauty shows

The gift of May

by Jem Croucher


A poem for Maytime
sitting out in the sun
The warmer air tells us
Springtime’s begun
There are dandelions
buttercups, daisies too
growing there in the grass
with the bells of blue

The Roller

by A. Marie

She is color, speed, and song.
Her appearance, an oasis
Of the eye.
A wunderkind, a rapture,
Were she mineral
She be as wulfenite.
A caress of spring flowering and
Young life, beauteous and beguiling.

Today the springtime yellow
is blossoming with youth
But winter’s icy fingers
Linger on and hide the truth

Greening time

Contentment here
in greening time
Out in the garden

Moulin Rouge Toulouse-Lautrec Paintings – 1890

Delightful Daphne,
Dowager dame
from Dorroughby downs –
Danced (dusting daisies) at dawn
In damask digs,
Dumbfounding Daft old Dan!

Pocket of sunshine

by Jem Croucher


Sitting in a pocket of springtime
Warmed by a welcome embrace
Breathing deeply the fragrance
Feeling the sun on my face
Knowing the winter’s behind me
Forgetting the six months of chill
Looking forward to summer
Promising warmer days still

that speaks a thousand words to me
But when capturing these in verse or rhyme

The Birth of Spring

Herald of Spring


The Silver Light of Winter
Has Spread her Arms and Laid Her head
Upon the mantle of the Frozen earth
To Kiss the Birth of Spring Instead.

Reflected blue

by Jem Croucher


Reflected in the River Thames
the blue of a March sky
still and peaceful water there
as I walk slowly by
Underneath the overground
at Kew, West London way
walking by the river
on an early Springtime day

In Michigan
the politicians of spring
will soon sprout

and shout
colorful words
of hope
from their pulpits.

An unwelcome guest

by Jem Croucher

11 March 2013

Winter’s overstayed its welcome
and we’d prefer it now to go
‘Cos we’re fed up to the gills with cold
and howling winds and snow

It’s been staying with us now for months
and whereas we didn’t mind at first
We need the room for Springtime
now the former’s done its worst

Joie de vivre

by Jem Croucher


Lethargy keeps on creeping in
I think it is the time of year
As we’ve had too much of winter
and although the spring is near
The cold won’t seem to leave us
and though we do have days of sun
they’re not at present warm enough
to give a sense of fun
