a simple and beauteous thing
one true sentinel of spring
forsythia gold, light or bright yellow
and some with a tinge of orange gone mellow
rise and be risen fore the green grows
push open the season now and thru time
23-APR-01 (+3 days)
Bunched and forthright everywhere
stretching to the sunís hot glare
day lilies rich and orange and even reddish
with stems that arc and crowns soon perish
yet day after day come blossoms robustly
CARPE DIEM now flourish the warmth
Adorning Majestic Red
strong orange bright yellow red
Autumn's foliage brought by the season's repeat
Persephone now signals her Winter retreat
crunch quick thru crispy leaves
gather the harvest and batten the seeds
