Midnight Crescendo
my harbinger of spring
sing a sleigh-bell chorus
equally at home in wooded glen,
grassy lowlands, and swamps 
my heart skips a beat
the instant I hear your greeting
 just like a robin
announcing that winter is over!
crescendo of midnight whistles
and mating sighs; discreet
well camoflaged... rarely seen
not much bigger than a paper clip
peeping from the sarasparilla
sing a sleigh-bell chorus
my harbinger of spring
Author's Notes:
inspired by dragonfly's poem about the spring peeper.  Please read his rhyming poem, Peepers.

A wonderful poem for spring.

A lovely tribute for our very little friend the peeper. Their calls do indeed trigger the first signs of spring when love (for them) is in the air :D

Linda Jo, this is just like my day.  This morning as I was making my breakfast, I heard a bird tweeting outside my window, which rarely happens.  Then outside it was almost 60 degrees all day.  I took a ride on a friend's motorcycle.  It felt like the first day of spring.  I love this poem.  It's very beautiful!

The greetings of bird songs is one of life's great pleasures. This is lovely Linda. Not much bigger than a paperclip you say? I'm not familiar with the spring peeper.
