Submission is now open for our Spring Poetry Anthology

SpringBy Christina Rossetti

Frost-locked all the winter, Seeds, and roots, and stones of fruits, What shall make their sap ascend That they may put forth shoots? Tips of tender green, Leaf, or blade, or sheath; Telling of the hidden life That breaks forth underneath, Life nursed in its grave by Death. Blows the thaw-wind pleasantly, Drips the soaking rain, By fits looks down the waking sun: Young grass springs on the plain; Young leaves clothe early hedgerow trees; Seeds, and roots, and stones of fruits, Swollen with sap put forth their shoots; Curled-headed ferns sprout in the lane; Birds sing and pair again.

Spring is the season that symbolises love, beauty, and novelty in nature in the hearts of people. And what better way to make it more memorable by creating an Anthology of poems dedicated to The Spring Love! Come let’s write some love poems symbolising Spring in its full glory and meaning.
