Spring Blooms

The most important thing to me
When spring is on the rise
Are all the lovely colors
Of flowers before my eyes.

I am astonished every year
That nature gives to me
Such changes so unbelievable
Surprising each time to see.

So here, my friends I share
This bouquet of daffodils
The colors take my breath
Mother Nature has such skills.

To bring forth sunshine yellow
With pale yellow as a blend
It makes me happy each year
I wish this time would never end.

    Salutations to you Marilyn!
    Well done on being chosen,
    And in your writing and flow and beat I see warm welcome echoes of Ella Wheeler Wilcox,
    My favourite poetess.
    Was she ever an influence to your good self, or was it somebody else that made you start writing poetry?
    I wish you well Marilyn and the loved ones around you.

    spring's my favorite time of year, marilyn—it helps that i don't suffer from allergies. among the many poems i've written on the season, i particularly suggest, if you are so inclined, " snowing seeds, " " semi-retired in early spring, " and " it seems." continue to enjoy the season! -glen

    Thank you Glen, for your comment. I too am so lucky not to suffer from allergies. I watch my husband and son suffer from them. We are on 40 acres of hayfields so my husband has to take something for it daily. But, what an exciting time of year it is.
