HAPPY DAY


Cornwall woke up
feeling beautiful.
Daffodils awaken
bright yellow faces.
People smile all day
because they want to.
I  am elated
first evidence of Spring.

Neat evocation. And guess what: just as you feel Spring awakening Autumn roars in like a lion here! Wind, rain, chill temperatures on 1st March but sunshine this morning.

That poem put a smile on my face. I particularly like 'Cornwall woke up feeling beautiful'.

Actually no, I really like all of it.

Mitch Block said...

Joyful! And it's good to smile all day because one wants to and not just because one should; I love those days.

Mitch Block: Smiling just because you want does feel so very good I agree.

It is trying to find that season, but still cold.

the cuby poet said...

Out on the prairie: It was still nippy but it was so cheering to have such a beautiful day.

I just noticed my daffodils are up - no blooms yet, but they are up.

the cuby poet said...

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm: There are fields of Daffs here as well as all over the verges and gardens. Cheery at all times.

Once again you have captured the essence of outdoors. My daffodils are just poking through the ground - a long way to go before they flower.

Doris:We are all daffed out here in the Tropical South West!

A nice taste of spring, which is far away here!

Cuby, I am so happy Spring is almost here. MY daffies are not showing yet. But your poem has made me smile and think of them. Have a great weekend!

the cuby poet said...

eileeninmd: It is the same sort of day today so I will be smiling all day. Look forward to your daffs they are such a happy flower.

the cuby poet said...

Al: It may not be with you yet but when it comes it will have been worth waiting for!

A very sunny poem, I love the first signs of spring.

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Oh, I miss seeing lots of daffodils! Happy coming-of-spring, Cuby.

the cuby poet said...

CherryPie: I loved the whole day!

the cuby poet said...

Welshcakes: St.David's Day and daffodils to remind you of home! Spring is definitely on the way. Sicily must have lovely warm days most days which is most definitely a benefit over the UK. Enjoy it!

Crafty Green Poet said...

lovely to see spring at last!

the cuby poet said...

Crafty Green Poet: It was short lived as today it is much colder with wind, grey cloudy and showers.
It was a promise of what is to come hopefully.
