Spring Words

February 15, 2021

Here, 
the snow has hidden the gentle seed
Spring,
Is a tear trapped behind my eyelid

The ink flows fine 
Yet I haven’t a line

It’s when you appeared 
Like I’d always knew you would
A gentle ray
A clear light
A warm sun wrapped in silk clouds

​I’m spellbound 
Your warmth wrapped around my heart 
My blood pulses through the nib
Words awaken from their slumber 
And stumble into a fever dream 

The stream of letters
ebbs across the plains
They map a plane of veins
and vines

The words dance across the lake
And you’re dancing with them

The words dance across the lake
And you’re dancing with them

And when the stream runs dry,
and the ink runs light,
I’d still trace poems of you in the snow
Until there’s none left to write

​I’m spellbound 
How much flows within a pen?
And when my love runs light
I’ll still trace poems of you
In the snow

Words of you 
In the snow

A gentle sun, a guiding light
Maybe it’s an early spring

​I’m spellbound

    Oh goodness this is gorgeous. I want to soak in it.
    “ The words dance across the lake
    And you’re dancing with them ” that line! Oh my, I’m just speechless. “ I’ll still trace poems of you“ like this imagery, the literary references, just the word spellbound. It’s magical.

    This is such an amazing song and I really relate to it. You have so much talent - I am in awe of you; you give Ariana Grande a run for her money. If you maybe have time to peer review one of my songs, (the one I submitted for the competition is called 'Gatekeeper' - best of luck in the competition. Much love!
