Serenade of SpringSerenade of SpringSerenade of Spring by The-Winged-Warden
By Amanda Michaud
The final days of winter begin to wane as the earth prepares for
Another seasonal serenade.
Storm clouds gather quietly over the snow-covered lands.
Lightning flashes across the gray skies extending their electrical hands.
The drumming of great thunder claps sound off in the distance.
Raindrops of ethereal grace fall gently upon the cold ground.
With these warm storms the promise of green life shall abound.
Spring’s tears awaken the slumbering seeds deep beneath the soil
Beckoning their growth with an ancient tune.
Once the rain has cleared, the rays of the sun harmonizes with the
Flow of nature.
In quiet pianissimos flowers, shrubs, and trees of all varieties bloom.
The chirping of birds soon pierces the grey gloom.
Frozen lakes and rivers thaw in heightening crescendos.
Roaring falls from mountains tall carry the nutrients of life’s cycle.
Herds of deer and elk once again prance about the evergreen meadows.

Dedicated to Erik Destler the Phantom of the Opera
A soul trapped by the dark cruelty of the world
Finds solace within the embrace of the earth.
Beneath the sunlit lands you create works of art
Full of tragedy and mirth.
A genius by birth you long to share your talent
With those above.
However your outer appearance inspires only fear,
The common folk lacking understanding and love.
Years of torment causes an unending flow of tears.
Beautiful you I hear your cries from across time.
You carry the voice of angels so sublime.
Sing your heavenly tunes to the world even if
They continue to judge.
Tis their moral reputation that will be smudged.
Beautiful you hide not your face behind a fabric of white.
As a friend who understands I will guide you into the
Together our voices will mingle, together our music will

A Poem Dedicated to the LGBTQ Nation (You are beautiful the way you are)
Raise your voice to the very heavens
Be not afraid to let them hear.
Yes there is so much evil and shadow
However you do not need to fear.
Open your eyes to the world around you
Let them see your soul shine through.
Step forward from the crowd,
Let them see you stand bold and proud.
You are more than just a creature of flesh,
But a being of emotions intricately weaved and meshed.
It should not matter what gender you love.
Love is a message sent from above.
Let society judge you not for who you are.
Hold out your hand and capture that falling star.
Let them not see your sorrows let them hear you laugh.
After all you are human just as I am.
