Springtime by the Small Marsh

I am a content writer who enjoys expressing my thoughts through poetry, travel and well-being tips.


The sights and sounds on the trail by the marsh

Like treats of nature that feed my soul

Rows of dandelions glow like the sun

A lush bloom of cotton like flowers

Swaying across a backdrop of blue heaven

I spot a tiny little evergreen tree

So sweet and cute as a button

Rustic bold rocks in the marsh call for attention

Among the patchy grass and tall golden straw

The chorus of high pitched little birds

Perk me up as they perch on their branches

The calm cool breeze feels pleasant and light

A mighty cluster of clouds captivating and cool

Springtime scenes blanket us with comfort

If we pay attention and listen to their call.
