Would that Spring
Would that Spring could be forestalled
Extending Winter's hold on Shenkuu lands
That lotus seeds within the solid soil
Could remain in safe and loamy hands.
Without Spring and the mounting sun,
The warming urgency upon the earth
Would not awaken the sleeping buds,
Impelling them through the dirt to burst
Like a green riot overwhelming,
A spreading mob of tender shoots
Reaching for the sun, beseeching,
Thirsting with their tendrils, roots,
Blossoming white flowers, brazen,
Immaculate blooms release perfume,
A shameless show of pomp paraded
Along Shenkuu's verdant avenues.
But soon will come the Summer's heat
And roots will find their thirst denied.
Shoots will swoon as though with fever;
The breeze plucks petals drained and dried.
Summer leads to Autumn's cravings,
The sun begins its rude retreat,
The winds, the rains, the constant lashings.
Lotus leaves lament lost verdigris.
Winter whispers send a shiver
Down stems of those that deign remain.
Stalks are wasted, wan and withered,
Their Springtime beds too soon their graves.
Would that Spring could be forestalled,
The seeds e'er frozen, protected in time,
But I suspect that if they their lot foresaw
Each lotus would still bravely burst to life.
Join me in my Spring Celebration,
Now that winter's vice-grip on the land
Has loosened slightly.
(Winter put the ice in vice, you know.)
Join me as I twirl,
Frilly skirts light as wind,
Amidst the bright yellow buttercups
And pale pink and mauve starflowers
That dance across the grass-green hills.
The Spring Celebration tends toward sweetness,
So have a Negg or two on me.
The Spring Celebration tends toward dancing,
So whirl with me -- ludicrous, silly, and enchanted.
The Spring Celebration tends toward music,
So sing with me, sing from smiling lips
With the breath of Easter candy,
Sing with me for spring ascending.
The Negg Hunt
It's a pretty spring
Close our eyes
Then the Neggs will
Be hidden! Oh boy, I can't
Wait to open all of mine and see
What's inside. There are pink ones
And green ones, and blue and purple
And every other colour achievable! It's
Starting now... CHARGE! They're all
Hidden, under bushes and behind the
Porch, but we all find them soon
Enough. We open and trade
And then we eat. I can't
Wait for next year.
Spring in Meridell
The sun rises slowly over Meridell,
Light breaking drops of dew
Into rainbows of colour that make
The landscape look just like new.
Flowers in front of Illusen's Glade;
The faerie waves as you pass by,
Tends to her garden that looks so good
That it instantly catches your eye.
A Blumaroo bounces by happily
As you walk down to the Symol Hole;
"A good morning to you," she greets.
"This weather is good for the soul."
Pets are already up and about,
More than usual at this hour.
They enjoy the warmth of the sun
And the smell of their favourite flower.
Even the Turmaculus looks to be
In a fine mood on this bright day;
He rolls over, his eyes half-closed
As his skin gets tickled by a sun ray.
Spring has arrived in Meridell,
Sleeping pets wake up with a yawn,
Trees grow flowers and put forth buds
Now that the snow of the winter is gone.
From Rosie to You
Behold, my friends! It is spring!
With the celebration, gifts I bring!
Colourful Neggs with prizes inside,
(Of course, some of them do hide.)
Well, I left them along the way
But I know you'll find them, I say!
Follow the clues, and hopefully
Those waiting Neggs you will see.
Open them up, what will you find
Within shells spotted, coloured, or lined?
Cybunny ears, a lovely carousel,
The missing Negg from last year, oh well!
But that's not all; there is more.
All for you, wonderful gifts galore!
A background like this, a bench like that...
Oh, is that a rotten Negg splat?
That's just the beginning of my giveaway;
I hope that you will stick around and stay
To enjoy the season of spring with me,
Dancing, singing, playing games... such glee!
To you, from me,
