The Petal Falls


The petal falls
The colors 
Of the apple blossom 
Rain on the eyes
Hungering for spring
Drinking in the color
Savoring them like 
They had to last forever
The children play
Adding to the  choir
That is already spring

I remember the apple blossoms
From my 5th grade class room
It was the most beautiful spring

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
