Birds chirping, dancing, Nesting on the trees. Flowers in the garden Blossoms and fresh breeze. Hepatica everywhere, violet, white and blue Waves gracious goodbye, Awakens Elfin thyme to come through. Unbroken, untouched, inviolate. Hiding among faded leaves, Covered the forest floor wild sweet Violet, Proudly stands without greaves. Heart-shaped leaves of wild Ginger Shaded away under trees. Hide from the sun, fear of danger Whisper to the wind “Weee-weee.” Stubborn Dandelions Blow kisses to bees, Attract them with sweet nectar, Make some of us sneeze. An elegant, naïve Dicentra, Silently weeping next to a tree. With a bleeding heart, she is no longer central Cause prickled Rose is the trustee. Butterflies flutter around Greeting each flower. Their love so profound Wings of hope and mighty power.
