Sunshine shadow

by Jem Croucher

Sunshine shadow
casts a glance
with nonchalance and whimsy
warming through the window
but outside still frail and flimsy

Sunshine shadow
gains in strength
now though as Springtime garners
new life from winter’s barren hands
for gardeners and farmers

I sing

by Jem Croucher

The sunshine comes against the blue
with birds up in the tree
encouraging this morning
as the Springtime here I see
Yes there is still a present chill
the crisp of winter clings
but in my heart the summer comes
so with the birds I sing

First VII

by Jem Croucher

7 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months III’ series

Yellow is indicative
as first of March arrives
and with daffodils the birth flower
we know that hope survives

Spring’s just round the corner
so the warmth will not be long
Promise brings a purpose
to the timbre of this song

Daffodils

by Jem Croucher

Yellow and gorgeous
they gleam from the vase
on the table, a nod to the Spring
Shouting a welcome
they want us to dance
and lift up our voices and sing

It felt like Spring

by Jem Croucher

It felt like Spring
through I knew that it wasn’t

green shoots were around
with colour now well on its way

An ode to Spring

by Jem Croucher

2 of 4

Winter’s grey-cast clouds have passed
and Summer’s child is here
to bring us hope and merriment
and fill our hearts with cheer
This child is full of freedom
speaking freshly of the truth
which every year around this time
gives nature’s hand its youth
Summer’s child will not stay long
but with a flair and fling
as seasons through the years have sung
for Summer’s child is Spring

Pink III

by Jem Croucher

I’m bold and I’m gorgeous
Bright in the sun
Pink, I am all about
life that’s begun
And I have no comparison
for tears or a smile
As you’ll not see such beauty
again for a while

Pink II

by Jem Croucher

I lay as soft carpet
pink where I fall
Whilst above me all turns to green

My task it is over
as with beauty I fade
leaving growth wherever I’ve been

Pink

by Jem Croucher

The breeze has blown
all the pink to the ground
from the blossom up there in the tree
Like a carpet it lies
with a hint of surprise
which is very appealing to me

Cherry blossom lovely

by Jem Croucher

The cherry blossom’s in full bloom
on the allotment in the sun
as I sit here and write a while
now the strimming is all done
The grass grows quick this time of year
so I’m down here quite a bit
with spare batteries in my bag
in case the good ones quit

a thing with a forgotten name

everything it saw
with light and warmth and something more

On which we all will oft have smiled
With the warm sunshine

For a flower passing

by Jem Croucher

On April seven a flower bloomed
as another faded still
falling silently asleep
Gently passing til
with spreading wide of petals
and yellow for the Spring
The one that bloomed to passing
stood with angels there to sing

the outside comes inside now
with fragrance of Spring

Anywhere will do

And its radiance

Sparkles all over

April

by Jem Croucher

No.8 of 12 in the Jemverse ’12 months II’ series

Diamond daisy April skies
Showers, maybe, cuckoo cries
Warmer days as winter dies
Spring is clearly here

Days are longer from sunrise
Fewer lows and many highs
Things are growing, no surprise
Summertime is near

Small yellow

by Jem Croucher

And then there’s small yellow
the voice of the Spring
which always each year
brings reason to sing
For this yellow, resplendent
like a slap in the face
tells winter still lurking
to be gone from this place
As now are the times
for the warming of knees
and the walking on sand
beside summer seas

Spirea Arguta

by Jem Croucher

As with flowers white and delicate

It’s always first to flower
for shade within my garden
from its small yet fragrant bower
