“Printemps Amour”
Poem by: Despoina


She comes around; from distant land
Visits once in a year
She sings the lied of newborn world
That all would love to hear


With long brown hair and crimson lips
And dimples in her cheeks
A creature of the mystic world
She always looks quite 'chic'


Her dress is made of silk and lace
Her shoes of fine pink satin
Her pace ethereal, light and slow
The breath of Sunday’s ‘matin’


The morning sun adorns her skin
The river fondles her feet
The lonely branches standing nude
Yearn for her tender treat


The almond trees carry her kiss
That makes them swell and bloom
Shy meadows blush in poppies red
And Hyacinths wear perfume


Her orchard filled with strawberries
Where finches sing: “Bonjour!”
Her wardrobe, full plumed woven lilies
Her name: “Printemps Amour”

  2. An elegant presence, comes not so often, a songstress, stylish, a diva and temptress excites the senses, alluring and sensual . . . and her music too.

    Your language is expressive, paints well the picture of the diva.

    Nicely done.

    1. Thank you!I'm honored! This poem is about Spring and nature's awakening. It seems that Spring, metaphorically, is quite a Diva!

  3. Springtime love, indeed! At first, I thought you were describing a real person, you personify her so well. I find your descrption of her attire quite charming and delightful, an almost child-like immersion in the sounds, textures, and contours of clothing. A very feminine, very admirable quality. The following stanza caught my fancy:

    With long brown hair and crimson lips
    And dimples in her cheeks
    A creature of the mystic world
    She always looks quite 'chic'

    I like the perfume of hyacinth, my fave spring flower. Paperwhites are nice too.

  6. The luxury Rolex Watches is an investment in the future;?A legacy that can be passed down from generation to generation.Perhaps the owner received their Luxury Breitling Watches?
    through the passage of a family member.?In this case, the Rolex Submariner Watches is valued for sentimental - as well as monetary value.While a Original Omega Watches can be expensive, it is wise to remember that you buy more than just a 1:1 IWC.The unfortunate truth is that whilst it is possible to get discounts on Hermes handbags.
