Spring Time

by | Sep 16, 2009 | Poetry | 0 comments

In early spring, the crocuses
Push their little heads above
The winter frozen ground.
The daffodils spring forth
Extending golden heads to the sun they love.
Forsythia and lilacs burst into bloom.
The buds of perennials and trees
Turn into flowers and leaves with room
For bushes and hyacinths and
Roses red and white
Whose beauty is enhanced by the sunshine light.
The heads of tulips add colour to the garden bare.
The cardinals and blue-jays
Add colour to the fences
And the trees as they sing
And warble in the breeze and air,
And the squirrels do appear
And simply stand and stare
Because they are tranquilized by the garden fair.
