A fresh coat of colors bloom (Form: Acrostic) Elizabeth's Poetry & Short Story Contest
Silently, the new leaves unfurl
Patterning the ground with shadowed mirth.
Returning birds sing noisy praise
In consonance with the land's rebirth.
No longer winter's withered hands
Grasp at the forlorn earth.
A fresh new coat of color blooms
With each new wondrous birth.
As the sun prolongs its flight,
Kind and gentle warming hands
Enclose and protect each promise;
Nurturing the pregnant lands,
Steadfast in keeping nature's plans.
