The Crocus - Poem by Joseph T. Renaldi

I saw a purple crocus today,
Though it barely could be seen,
While all around was white,
And the landscape seemed to gleam.

I saw a purple crocus today,
The sky was bright and clear,
And yet I know it meant for me
That the spring season was near.

I saw a purple crocus today,
That protruded through the snow,
It triggered a moment of excitement,
And meant a lot for me to know.
