Day 12 – A-Z Blog Challenge – ‘L’


L – Longer Days 

Longer Days was inspired by a spring prompt. It was first published in Brian Wrixon’s Poets with Voices Strong – Spring Poetry.



Longer Days

Longer days, shorter nights,
pastel colours sprout,
warmer sun, lighter wind,
children play and sing,
birds hum out loud.

Men on mountain bikes,
tots on tricycles,
spin fast,
speed on dust,
riders hold on tight.

Frogs seek out ponds,
safe home for birth,
mounting males drone,
females quiver,
too early to spawn.

Ducks dip,
ripple water.
Golden reeds of canary
grass blow sweet
scent with the wind.


L – Letter Poem

A poem written in the form of a letter

L – Light Verse

Light verse is poetry that entertains and tends to make the reader laugh. It includes the limerick.
