Poem: That Spring Breeze

Spring is in the air! It was such a great feeling that I wrote this poem:

Poem: That spring breeze
Written by: Jolly Yau

That sweet spring breeze swept across the sea,
Came tumbling into my window, in front of me.
It’s getting colder now, it whispered into my ear.
But I am here, so there’s nothing left to fear.

Then it left, as sudden as it came,
Leaving nothing but days with rain.
I chased after the breeze with devotion
but found myself running towards the ocean.

Don’t want it gone,
Nor the blazing sun at dawn.
Or even that warm tingling feeling,
I could feel in the air each spring.

Spring gone, winter came,
Bringing tears and rain.
There is so much emotion,
And too much of devotion.

I start to gather memories,
Fearing I will soon forget that spring breeze,
And all those wonderful dreams each night,
Or the moon that glistens so bright.

    Wow, that’s a really beautiful poem. I totally agree with you that spring breeze is ‘sweet’, i enjoy walking around suzhou when it’s spring very much. Very nice metaphor used in this poem, and great structure, it rhymes in every stanza. Excited about your next poem now ^_^

    Haha this poem is really interesting. As I read this poem, it was as though I could feel the ‘sweet spring breeze’ blowing gently into my face. The imagery used in this poem is good.

    !!!!!! I am so surprised !!!!! its absolutely soo amazing:))
    I really liked the way it rhymes and also a beautiful image that makes in my head. I especially like this phrase: ‘I chased after the breeze with devotion.’ it is quite dramatic but gives deep impression!!

    My ‘decorative’ writing style must be influenced by Christopher Paolini! His writing seems so delicate but full of emotion at the same!
