Here’s wishing you a happy Monday, dVerse poets, and welcome to the pub, which is now open! It’s Kim from Writing in North Norfolk bringing you the Quadrille, when we take any meaning of one word and transform it into 44 poetic words. Today, I want you to write a poem of exactly 44 words (not counting your title), including the word spring.

Spring can be a verb, meaning to leap, shoot up (or forth), come into being, appear, or grow. It can be a noun: water coming up out of the ground, a coil of resilient metal (for example, bed springs) and, of course, a season. You could write about something that’s springy, a springboard, spring-cleaning, spring onions (also known as scallions) or spring tide. You could bend it around to create your own spring-like words. Does anyone remember Zebedee from the Magic Roundabout and Tigger, whose bottoms were made out of springs?
