Spring Greetings--By Linda Hurdwell--England

Spring Greetings
(acrostic poem)

Sing a song of Springtime
Pad it out with fun
Reaching for the sunshine
Inside every-one
Gather the love of happiness
Greeting all today
Race for the joy of Springtime
Enjoy the chance to play
Every-one basks merrily
Trades a massive smile
Intrepid optimists
Nature does beguile
Glad to have a lighter step
Season with such style.

Linda Hurdwell has been a widow for 5 years. She has two adult sons. Living in the English countryside, she takes her dog, Bessie, for a daily walks and that's where many of her poems and stories are born.  She has always loved writing and has a few short stories published. Although now a pensioner, she enjoys working with adults with learning disabilities and running a mencap social club once a week. Her hobbies are writing, tap dancing, and going to the theatre or cinema with my friends.


  1. Linda,
    Great in content and form. You made the acrostic form rhyme, which is not easy to do.
    Your new friend,
    David Fox

  2. Oh yes, you sure have a lighter step as shown through these spritely and flowing lines, Linda! Spring and joy are in the air! ~ All the best....paul
