I decided to follow today’s (optional) prompt: to base my poem round one of the many weird and wonderful words from @HaggardHawks tweets.
So, what did I choose? I wrote an acrostic poem on Vernality: n. (1600s) a Spring-like quality; the greeness and freshness of Springtime. Did they have confetti way back in the 1600s? Maybe they threw rice instead. who knows? Hope you enjoy it anyway.
Verdant, spring green; fresh vers de terre, Early bird gorges as Rain-soaked grass yields a rich feast; Nature’s bounty. April showers swathes of apple blossom; confetti Litters lawns mowed heart-shaped. Iridescent kaleidoscope of joy Teeming with newborn promise. Yellow daffodils trumpet “Welcome!”
