Tied, Untried & True

spring has sprung
and she feels flung.
no time to sing,
laugh in flowers,
raise face to sun.

give her a warm-wandered
shore, a place to store
the sands of time.
a sea. a song.

spring her
from these
chains, love

    ….oh I LOVED to make daisy chains and dandelion chains when I was little….and with my grandkids too! 🙂

  2. She is a busy lady… love her though when she’s sprung… 🙂

  3. frankhubeny says:

    Thinking of a chain as a daisy chain makes it seem more like a love knot.

  4. Glenn Buttkus says:

    Love knots, daisy chains, & dream catchers–all still await the exit of chill here in the NW. I like the look &feel of your last stanza.

  5. I love how you are asking to ‘give her a warm-wandered shore, a place to store the sands of time’ :o)

  6. Magic words! It snowed on our daffodils and blooming forsythia this morning (bah humbug), but hopefully this last blast of winter will be brief.

    spring her undone from these daisy chains, love knots… oh I like that!

    This is fun…especially the last verse 🙂

  9. erbiage says:

    You acheive a brilliant balance in your work, with those parenthesis. And the rimes fit so well

  10. I like this one. It has real energy. I can feel it skipping along.

  11. Happy, delightful poem, De. I’m wondering if you are experiencing summer like we are right now. 95! And the air-conditioning is in a funk.

  12. Oh this is soo elegantly written De ❤️ I absolutely adore this “give her a warm-wandered shore, a place to store the sands of time. a sea. a song.”

    Warm-wandered shore and daisy chains spoke to me De ~ Let her spring and fly free ~

    That’s a tongetwister of a title, De, and I love it. You’ve spun words wonderfully again in a lyrical Quadrille that makes me smile, especially those
    chains, love

    I felt I was skipping in this poem

  16. Michael says:

    Ah the joys of spring De…

  17. Singledust says:

    what a unique way to present the Quadrille, I admire it very much. a place to store
    the sands of time. – this was brilliant – the sea and sand sing a song to keep – inspiring!

  18. I loved the word play in this piece. Well done De. 🙂

  19. Truedessa says:

    spring her undone – unraveling in the beauty of warm beginnings…

  20. erbiage says:

    Nots are chains indeed.

  21. MarinaSofia says:

    This poem certainly springs about as cheerily as a lamb! Perfect!

  22. merrildsmith says:

    I love the rhythm and energy of this!

  23. Imelda says:

    Lovely last lines. 🙂
