Surrender to Spring (Monorhyme)--By Connie Marcum Wong--United States

Surrender to Spring (Monorhyme)

The majesty of pine trees heavy laden with snow
Sparkle in dawn's dappled light with a glistening glow.
Monumental mountaintops survey valleys down below
Dwelling in the snow's melt enchanted rippling rivers flow.
Spring's early footsteps lead to where the gardens grow.
Soon daffodils and tulips will display a springtime show.

He loved the majesty of pine trees showered in snow.
We watched dawn's dappled light with a glistening glow,
And skied from mountaintop to the valley down below.
We marveled as snow melted into rippling river's flow
And walked amidst the garden as spring coaxed it to grow.
We married while bright tulips put on a springtime show!
