Spring Visitor

By Marjorie Eldred

 

The following poem is a tetractys. It starts with one syllable, increases one syllable each line till line five. Line five is ten syllables. Second verse starts with ten syllables, then decreasing syllables each line, 4, 3, 2, 1. Enjoy the picture with me.

 

Spring

Robin

Redbreast comes

Hopping, pecking,

Flying to and fro, sitting ‘midst crocus

Searching worm’s movement, filling babies’ mouths.

Gard’ners watching

Welcome spring,

Rejoice,

Smile.
