Emboldened by unseasonal sunshine, above rivers, fens and brine, pink-footed, barnacle, greylag and snow, Brent and Canada, see how they flow into skeins, and the beat of their wings honking and cackling as they pass by - a promise of spring scrawled in the sky.

Today is Quadrille Monday at the dVerse Poets Pub, and De is barkeeping with her favourite of all the dVerse prompts, when we write poems of exactly 44 words, including one word provided by our host.
De tells us that she chooses a word each year to define the days ahead and, this year, two words have wooed her, one of which is ‘bold’. She asks us to read her examples of use of the word and then ‘boldly go and embrace the bold poet within’.
