Letters from S: May 2022 – A Selection of Springtime Poems
I freely admit that I don't know a lot about poetry or poets but when I do discover a delightful set of phrases I savor their simply put yet intricate beauty and take comfort in knowing that somebody felt the same way and had the genius to capture the fleeting moment, memory or a feeling. And, naturally, if the set of phrases is incredibly joyous I add it to my Pinterest board.
As a matter of fact and in my humble opinion, spring is an exceptionally poetic time of the year that seems to wake the poet even in the most discreet of natures. The end of May, at least in northern hemisphere, was surely when the lyrical souls of humankind sat down to put on paper the matters of heart, nature and senses. And would it be any wonder, when the world is all of a sudden so colorful, scented and loud?
Therefore, in the spirit of springtime poets, I want to share some of my favorite spring appropriate poems which I discovered on Pinterest to make this last week of spring especially memorable. Hopefully, they will take you into summer with happy and uplifted moods!
A SELECTION OF SPRINGTIME POEMS:
Spring Poem 1
To see the world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.
– William Blake
Spring Poem 2
"Hope" is a thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all
– Emily Dickinson
Spring Poem 3
Doubt thou that the starts are fire;
Doubt thou that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.
– William Shakespeare, Hamlet
Spring Poem 4
A host of golden daffodils,
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
– William Wordswhorth
Spring Poem 5
If I can stop one heart
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
– Emily Dickinson
