The Colour of Spring

It's that time of year again, when I have to take the camera down the garden to record the flowers that are appearing as the sun breaks through the winter clouds. I know you have seen them all before but what the heck, they are beautiful.


In the midst of winter

The dainty snowdrop white

Raises its delicate head.

Though the garden is pale

In the watery light.

As weeks progress

The crocus shows it head

As buds of gold.

The garden awakes

In sunlight bold.

Yellow is the colour of spring

The primrose pale grows now.

So delicate

It braves the cold

I wonder how.

The daffodil in golden hue

This yellow theme echoes

From the cold brown earth,

When March arrives,

It bravely grows.

The star-like celandine wild,

A golden carpet makes

Beneath the trees

The yellow colour creeps,

The colour of spring.
