Anticipation

Night breeze inhibits, warm hints that signal “spring”,
Night breeze inhibits, warm hints that signal “spring”,
Too long delayed, yet, hope is mine,
Too long delayed, yet, hope is mine
Warm spring breeze (yet mine delayed)
That Signal, inhibits hints of hope: Night is too long!

Shy, undaunted, buds by chilled earth peeking, 
Shy, undaunted, buds by chilled earth peeking,
Seeking sun, from seasons sitting dormant,
Seeking sun, from seasons sitting dormant,
Chilled earth sitting by sun-peeking buds, 
Undaunted, seeking, from shy, dormant season.

On trial, it seems, as winter’s raspy file,
On trial, it seems, as winter’s raspy file,
Despite attempts to swipe and chase away,
Despite attempts to swipe and chase away,
The trial as raspy filed and swipe away,
Despite (it seems) to winter’s chase attempts.

That spring breeze, is sitting too long, filed away, 
Delayed by winter’s raspy chill, Yet mine inhibits 
(it seems), despite shy buds’ warm attempts, 
From earth peeking, by sun seeking trial,
Hints of dormant hope, as signal undaunted, 
To swipe and chase the night season.

  • Each stanza consists of 6 lines.
  • For the first 3 stanzas, the 1st and 2nd lines should be the same; the 3rd and 4th lines should also be the same; and the 5th and 6th lines should be composed of all the words from the 1st and 3rd lines and only the words from the 1st and 3rd lines.
