Spring has set in!
Still on the mend but plenty of time for weekend wandering and pondering around the garden.
Spring has set in
As day breaks the birds begin to sing.
Low early fog is still lingering.
Burning off as the sun rises overhead.
The early spring tulips drop petals as they shed.
Lush green grass sprouts up ready to mow.
Wine grape leaves just starting to show.
My spirit high in this healing time.
Your bad mood has no effect on the days shine.
Nature child where has your happiness gone?
What pleases you more the flower or the stone?
The dependable stone, so solid and always there.
The short-lived flower, its beauty so rare.
Soon the summer will come and the flowers will fade.
The stone will heat up when you’re looking for shade.
So decide on one or be happy with both.
For today is a spring day and we should make the most.
