Hang Up Your Pail 

By Courtney E. Taylor

Birds and bees,

Rains falling, waters flowing,

The sounds of Spring.

People emerge with the blossoms,

Warmth drawing them forth from the winter.

Joy swells.

Small animals step forward,

Wavering in rhythm with the forecast.

Seeds fall into place.

Summer rushes forth,

Smothering heat, oppressive air

Crops rise and break,

Trees blow and burn.

No stopping time.

Hang up your pail,

Bid farewell to Spring.

Bucket

By Kelli J Gavin 

I have been told it is too small

My bucket, that is

Too small to hold it all

Hopes and dreams should be big I am told

Bigger than what my bucket can hold

I believe it is just the right size

It contains everything I need

Happiness

Memories

Love

Faith

Kindness extended to me

Forgiveness

Lessons learned

Gratefulness

But what it contains is mine

A little bit of who I am

Of what I have become

When I pour it all out

I gaze at where I once was

Savor where I am now

It is altogether inspiring to me

That my small bucket holds

Everything I need

Hopes for my children

Dreams for my loved ones

Satisfaction of a life being lived well

Stop worrying about my bucket

Start addressing the hole in yours
