A Whiff of Spring--By John W. (Bill) Williams--United States

A Whiff of Spring

Spring comes in:
trees, wild flowers and blades
of grass fill my nostrils.
I rejoice that Nature is retrieving
its path from winter’s ice and snow…
My heart is stirred
by the colorful embroider
of butterfly wings and the hum
of bees in clover fields…
I echo from my heart a praise
that I am here once more
to celebrate the season
I love so much.

John W. (Bill) Williams is a retired language arts and children’s literature educator.  He lives in Martin, GA, where he stays busy with his art and poetry.  He has been published in a variety of venues.


  1. Dear John thanks for sharing Uniquely written "A Whiff of Spring"
    I love the coverage, beginning with winter’s ice and snow,
    graduating to spring growth, aroma, and exciting glow.
    Nice piece of work. Great to read.
