Treasure Island

J.B. LeBuert

(Kenmore, New York)


The forsythia blooms early in the Spring.
The bright yellow flowers are a very good thing.
The flowers emerge even before the leaves.
When pruning this shrub, roll up your sleeves.

They're ornamental Eurasian shrubs.
Be sure and check them for grubs.
You must care for all of your plants.
And when you're working - wear long pants.

The Spring would not be the same,
Without these beautiful bushes, in the game.
Their bright yellow flower sprays,
Will last in an arrangement, for many days.

These shrubs should be added to your list,
To be purchased soon, if you get my gist.
They're a great addition to any garden.
So don't let your imagination harden.

They can be seen from quite a distance;
So buy a few, on my insistence.
You'll be quite happy, and never regret;
On this subject, I'll place a bet.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
