Mirror Poem: Spring Returns to Northern Hemisphere

Folding Mirror poetry returns! Sorry about the lack of poetry lately, but the admin’s been busy elsewhere, trying to save the natural world by cranking out articles. That market has now dried up, so there’s time for some poetry.  Marc Latham has created another spring season poem, with the return of sunshine and warmth to the northern hemisphere awakening his muse.
This poem is structured around the five senses:
  1. hearing
  2. smell
  3. sight
  4. touch
  5. taste
The poem’s top half lines descend in that order, with the bottom half’s lines ascending in that order. Here it is:

Waning Winter, Sensing Spring
lawnmower alarms ears
grass awakens nose
buds open eyes
leaves raise hands
strawberries tang tongue
warm weather wins, cold climate collapses
hot toddies toast
gloves go underground
curtains for hibernation
logs burnt out
whistle ends season
