Step into Spring

Throw off the blankets of winter
Slip off your overcoat’s gloom
Wipe off the makeup of hope
Take down the baubles in the room

Push away the pastries and cakes
Nibble on lemons instead
Stretch your legs, expand your lungs
Let the breeze lighten your head

Fling open the shutters of your mind
Remove the dirty drapes
Throw away moth-chewed jumpers
Create some new space

De-clutter your heavy wardrobe
Make love to your fragrant wife
Walk barefoot on warm pavements
Re-introduce yourself to life

  1. "Wipe off the makeup of hope" is such beautiful language and especially resonates since the poem seems intended for a male.
