The Promise of Spring


Spring's coming!
The butterfly bush is
Beginning to bloom.

Daffadils are smiling
All over the place
Faces of yellow with
White tinted lace caps.

Spring's waving in between
The pines and oaks
Folks rake in new turf
Teasing the earth to wake
Up warmer days...

Spring!
Soon to be
A happening!

Yall Come!

When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
