My Spring Garden



Azaleas mauve in bright profusion

First blossoms in my dormant garden

Rain and sun have worked their fusion

To wake this shrub from hibernation


Others have crocus  and daffodil

Forsythia magnolia and Hyacinth

To signal spring and winters fill

The azalea flags my spring’s dalliance 


At long last winter’s finally gone

Dreary dull and monochrome

The bright mauve blossoms all alone

Promise August’s luxuriant biome

Thank you for waking me up like the Azalea. I am in no hurry for August however.

Winsomely exposited, with lyric grace and a clear eye.

Wonderfully exuberant my friend. But down under winter is coming. My mother loved Azaleas.
