A balmy breeze
Silk cotton majestic and Bottle Brush swaying gently at ease.
Flowers spilling over side-walks like children tumbling around in play
In absolute unfettered joy!
Stocks in rows. Phlox in tow,
Candy tuft and them-a royally purple show.
Daisies in white, daisies in blue.
The Williams looking pinkly sweet and true
Petunias in frills and a mild perfume.
Delicate damsels all dressed to go out in the noon
Dahlias bob their heads in animated conversation.
With the Pansies smile shyly like young children.
Poppies add a splash of red
Like rubies on an emerald bed,
Calendulas yellow, Cornflowers blue
Snapdragons and Salvia and Larkspur too
Gentle sunshine, comfortable warmth, renewal in every view.
Restorative weather to drive away the cold blues.
A gentle fulfilling happiness flows
Thus revives Spring…with its beauteous hues.
