Ten ways to welcome Spring.
As an avid writer and committed reader of poetry, I have a special way to
welcome the season of Spring which I would prefer to recommend to others
too. One of the prime ten ways is to write as many write-ups and hang on the
wall so as to cheer you as a permanent reminder of the celebration of the
upcoming season. One such write-up or poem is as follows which has been
sufficiently illustrated with apt paintings . Some similar versifications have gone
into my diary.
Oh! spring in my life, with redoubled vigour,
dispelling surrounding gloom and sombre
mood of dismay and despair,
weaving into a life of floral debonair.
2 nd way : universally anticipated, acclaimed and welcomed with a fervent hope
and expectation, the spring season beckons all with mirth and jubilation.
Feed the bird, fender the pots. of garden. Gardening gives you not only a
Sense of aesthetic pleasure but also physical exercise both to your body and
Mind. Planting new pots and changing flower plants freshens your mind and
Spirit. I personally knew a neighbour of mine who would spend almost ten hours
for he feels he gets inspiration and feed back for his fiction, by getting
immersed with natural objects. Floral decoration is a unique joy to share with.
I decor my sanctum sanctorum with the colourful flowers.
3 -Third type is Bird watching. Only during SPRING those birds come out
to partake of Nature’s immeasurable BLISS. Watching birds is a special
pleasure. Spring is the season for various birds, spring is the season for birds
to sing and chirp , for us also to sing along, to chirp and hum about to
be one with the rhythm of Nature. After so long been indoors during
the gloomy winter that till now supped your wintry moods, the pecking
and wandering birds invigorate your jejune spirits and moods.
4Fourth type-is Interior decoration of walls with paintings on SPRING
flowers , changing carpets ,arranging flower vases in corners etc.,
Inviting guests , arranging tea parties , mutual way of exchanging
Greetings, for SPRING season is a Season of New Birth and celebration
of songs and exchange of gifts.
5Fifth type is taking a vow during season to donate by way of charity
of toys and clothes to charity organisations. With the receding winter,
let our hearts’ view broaden the prospects of giving with a benign
motive to the deserving and needy.
6sixth one is visiting spas, arranging tours ,going to places and
Natural resorts -enjoying the scenery make a lot in efficient way of
7The seventh type is experimenting with food items , making new
types of cakes, recipes and delicious dishes, not only bring the family
together but also keep you occupied usefully during the season of
joyous get together.
8Tailoring and embroidery , knitting special designs and curtain clothes,
draperies in tune with the season’s mood and setting another exemplary
way of spending Spring.
9-Ninth way is collecting clippings and articles on SPRING and showcase
them in your library so that they are a timely reminder that ” if Winter
comes, can Spring be far behind?” so much so your sombre moods
can be rejuvenated.
10 Last but not the lest way is taking a vow that each family will adopt
One child and bear the expenditure towards the upbringing ,till the child
becomes independent. Let spring bloom in his life too.
