Good is the Spring Green

by Jack Veeger

 

A day propitious for loving

Is one that brims with springtime green

More than a thousand shades of green

With touch of secrecy in wistful longing

 

Long-dormant urgings reawaken

As if reminded by ubiquitous green

From deep-dark green to ethereal green

That knows that spring is not to be forsaken

 

Add in suggestive whispering

A giddiness provoked by all that green

The certainty that fruit succeeds the green

And waters giggling and gurgling

 

Good is the prophecy, good is the green

Good is the wind that spreads new green
