THE PRIMROSE - a re-post for the renewal of Spring!

Peeping from beneath the tree,

I heard the primrose speak to me.

Winter's done, I heard it say,

Warmer days are on their way.


Mother Nature waits on me

(The "First Rose" is my name, you see)

While other flowers lie abed,

I welcome Spring and show my head.


Then, with the golden daffodil,

I gild the countryside until

In turn the other blooms appear,

Assured that Summer's lease is near.


Peeping from beneath the tree,

I heard the primrose speak to me.

When nature lives her life anew,

You'll hear the primrose speak to you.

Thanks JC - a favourite short poem is Housman's
"Loveliest of Trees" - and I stay with the belief that
for some things "less is more". Neither trees nor flowers are in need of flowery phraseology.

Simple rhythms for a simple flower. Very apt, MC. My prims and pollys are looking good.
