Spring Fever with Dulcimer and Flowers

Today's music on the dulcimer is by Donna Germano. This video is made possible thanks to YouTube's share button.

Today's quote is by Mark Twain:

"It's spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"

Poetry Writing Prompt:  Your poem's working title is SPRING FEVER.  Write 20 lines.
Then edit your poem and change the title. 

Fiction Writing Prompt:  Pick a character who has spring fever.  Write a scene that follows your character's thoughts as your character takes a walk to give flowers to a sick neighbor.

Creative Nonfiction Writing Prompt:  What does Spring Fever mean to you?  What does it make you want?  Write about it.


  1. Personally I love spring, I'm taking out last years summer clothes today, hope I'm not being too optimistic. I'll try the fiction writing prompt later. Thanks Olive

  2. That's great, Olive. Let us know how it works for you and if you'd like to post an excerpt from your writing, we'd love to see it. I'd love to get my spring clothes out today, but it is just too cold out here where I live. I'll be patient while basking in spring fever fantasies. Happy Writing! ~Anjie
