Quadrille: Spring Me Happy


lr-1030261 ww


spring me a splash
in the channel
that sparks crystals
from mountain to sea

spring me a dance
on the sands of
the shoreline smiles
flying for all to see

spring me
a reason’s season
where every day is
the best it can be

  1. Using Spring as a verb is trey poetic & uber cool. There is something about the exuberance of a dog at the beach that completes our experience & appreciation. Your Q44 is as light-hearted as the dog’s romp.

  2. There is a lovely lilt to your Quadrille, Eivor, Pearl and Xenia, that echoes the spring of a whippets paws on the beach. I love the playful use of language: ‘spring me splash’, the flying smiles and ‘spring me a reason’s season’! And the photos just melt my heart! πŸ™‚ xxx
