For The Love Of Haiku

Click to see the making of the haiku image for this week 🙂

Hark, you square-eyed kids!
Teletubbies sent packing.
Spring means outdoor play.

Come and join in with the happy springtime fun at http://allaboutlemon.com/2013/03/30/for-the-love-of-haiku-26-happy-spring/, not that I’m encouraging you adults to have square eyes! And, as for those Teletubbies, I don’t intend to invite them into my garden in a hurry, if they’re in the habit of trampling on the flowers like that. Grumpy old woman, me 😉

Spring haiku #2

Early evening.
Plump wood pigeon contemplates
the meaning of Spring.

Music Passion

Music Passion at http://allaboutlemon.com/music-passion/passion is for songs about “Spring”, which I’ve chosen to celebrate with a rumbustious late medieval – early renaissance song, “Ecco la Primavera” (Spring has come apace) by the Italian composer Francesco Landini, performed here by the hungarian multi-instrumentalist Arany Zoltán.

The English translation of the song is …

Spring has come apace
To waken hearts to gladness;
Time for lovers’ madness
And to wear a happy face.
#
The elements together
Are beckoning to mirth;
In this delightful weather,
Delight pervades the earth.
#
The grass in fresh rebirth
Helps meadows come a-flower,
And every branch and bower,
Is decked with kindred grace.
#
Spring has come apace
To waken hearts to gladness;
Time for lovers’ madness
And to wear a happy face.
