Winter We Must Mourn

The sun rises on the horizon, a bright ball of fire,
It’s the first day of spring, a new start to inspire,
Floating through air are the blossoms of trees,
And the flowers lose their pollen to honey bees,

White roses like stars begin to bloom in the green,
Then come buttery daffodils, the biggest you’ve seen,
It arrives, it awakes, the winter we must mourn,
But spring is alive, resurrected, reborn.

We breathe in sweet air, as the birds begin to sing,
Everything is revived which is life’s joyous thing,
Goodbye to winter, once again it must sleep,
The slumber is long, the slumber is deep.

Spring is awake here, its time is right now,
And the farmers on their fields prepare to go plough,
We wonder, we stare, our hearts full of affection,
For a world that is beautiful in its true resurrection.

By Millie Barker Yr 7, Bishop Challoner School
