Swept up in a Circle

The chill of morning gone I throw the blanket on the floor
Stumble to the kitchen where my boots wait at the door

Winter gone my lawn displays what seasons left undone
Now I have to finish all I had begun

Daffodils lift their heads
To greet a sun-dipped sky

Once again it’s déjà vu
I’ve been here before, haven’t I?

Ah, it’s spring circling through
I’ve seen this before, haven’t I?

The chill of morning gone I throw the blanket on the floor
Stumble to the kitchen where my boots wait at the door

dversepoets.com. Prompt is to write a circular poem. We are experiencing a few days of warm temperatures. Spring is fickle every year. It may very well snow in April.

  1. Bravo the return of spring (fickle or not). The circle poem works so well here – though I found the repetition of the questions – ‘I’ve been here/seen this before, haven’t I?’ disquieting – almost as if the subject were troubled by the familiar renewal. An intriguing piece which I liked a lot.

    I love the image of your boots waiting at the door to take you out to your spring garden. I hope it makes up its mind to stay soon!

    A lovely circle of rhyming couplets, Mary, with both chill of morning and winter gone. I love the thought of your boots waiting at the door. My wellies are always ready and waiting at the back door. 😊 I can see daffodils from my window and started my spring cleaning yesterday – we now have a sparkling porch to greet visitors once the lockdown is lifted.

    This is absolutely stunning! I love the image of the daffodils as their lift their heads “to greet a sun-dipped sky.”💝💝

    I like your throwing the blanket on the floor. The first time it feels like it’s thrown one way and at the end in another. I like the clarity and groundedness of the ordinary world you describe here, Mary.

  6. I do love this return… and to have those wellies at the door has to help as a reminder.
