Spring's 'round the Corner

The years at the spring
And day's at morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew-pearleld;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in his heaven-
All's right with the world!
~~Robert Browning~~

I know that Spring is still three weeks away and the change to daylight savings time is not for two weeks.  You can accuse me of pressing my luck.  So be it!!  Just remember!  The Feast of Saint Patrick falls between both...There is Hope for Spring!!!  


Spring's 'round the corner
Goslings and ducklings are born
Softness in down

Little lambs and calves
Nourished by their mother's milk
Spring's 'round the corner

Thanks be to God!!


I'm joining for the first time Little Things Thursday.  Drop by by and visit!

Please visit Rebecca at recuerda mi corazon for Haiku My Heart. There is always more beautiful words  there to enchant and encourage!!! 


  1. Yes I think spring will come soon, even though it might be chilly for awhile. I think we just had our one and only snow "event" which wasn't much at all but with it's dense slush, has watered the earth well.

  2. Lovely haiku and adorable photo of the baby chick ~ Hopeful!

    Happy Weekend,
    artmusedog and carol

  3. Great photo and verses. Hold on, spring's coming!!

  4. looking out the window at sun sparkling off deep snow… birds singing, I too am expectant for springs arrival. Beautiful haiku and sweet, sweet photo Cathy:-)

  5. we have been enjoying spring weather early this year. the fruit trees are all in flower, daffodils and iris all abloom! suddenly the last hurrah of winter has turned back on her heels to lay one more blanket of snow on all our dreaming!

  6. happy to hear of your early spring

    much love...

  7. Precious baby duck. He will be first to see the Spring. I will be second! :)

  8. Spring like weather here. Birds on the move again.

  9. Such a lovely, soft celebration of the birth of Spring Cathy! Thank you!

  10. I am more than ready for spring -- always remembering that our great Blizzard of '93 was in March . . .

  11. To those in snowy climes, that corner seems awfully long, I'm afraid.

  12. It can't come soon enough! Still *cold* here in NE! The baby duck reminds me of our grandson who lives in FLA who recently discovered a family of a *dozen* baby ducks in the pond near his home and is soooo excited about them! Nice to realize that, even if we're still shivering in our shoes here, it is spring somewhere already! Blessings, Cathy!

  13. Completely charming. It makes me want to plan a trip to walk about the lake in a few weeks to see the baby ducks.

  14. Great post and I love the cute duckling... Have a happy weekend!

  15. So darned cute!!!
    Loved reading your composition too!! Talent with word AND photography....well done.

  16. Hi! Your Haiku made my heart very warm. The poem by Browning is very very famous in our country too. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Hang on just a wee bit longer! We've almost made it! March is such a mixed bag, but the spring finish line is so close!
