Springtime Rhyme by Ellen Sue

Saturday, March 20th, 2021

Today is the first day of Spring, so I penned a little rhyme to honor this day and remind us of Mother Earth’s bounties.

Sacred Spring

By ellensue

The crocuses have started blooming.

Time to stop all this Zooming.

Watch as Spring unfurls her magic.

Don’t ignore this; ‘twould be tragic!


Open the windows and breathe the air.

Spring is coming, warm and fair.

Treat her kindly; let’s be gentle….

Budding flowers wax sentimental.



Spring brings Hope & the miracle of Life.

With Covid-19, we know the strife

of basic survival on planet Earth.

Spring is sacred; a yearly rebirth.


Budding flowers. Springtime greenery.

What perfectly natural, lovely scenery.

Yet, too much plastic; too little biodiversity.

Silent Spring * warned of this adversity.


We’re taking more than what we give.

So, if Spring is here, we must let her live

in a world that’s kind, gentle & clean.

Sacred Spring: let’s guard this precious mantle of green.

Lancaster Farm Poem & Painting

Lancaster Farm

painting by Judy Ringold (above) and poem by Stanley Fink (below)


Early morning rising sun


Farm house



All nestled

In the green shade of

Old Oak and Maple trees.

This place is

So quiet, serene and still

It seems frozen in time.

The harvest and livestock

Are safely sheltered

From rain and snow.

But the biggest threat

Is our own attitude.

This land is sacred–

We do not own it.

Ours only to borrow

To preserve for tomorrow.


Thanx to Judy & Stanley for their timely contributions! I am reading books on climate control and the environment, so this dynamic duo seems very timely.
