Over the last few days I’ve noticed more and more signs of Spring almost here to stay. Yesterday afternoon as I was driving home, the sky was so blue and the sun was bright, and I noticed that even though the trees are not green they are full of buds. Here’s the poem that happened:
Trees, bare and brown
At winter’s end
Bright sun and blue sky
Of early spring
Branches full of buds
Then today as I walked up to my door, it seemed as if my little daffodils suddenly appeared. When they bloom each year, I think of one of my favorite pieces of writing:
Daffodils poke through the brown,
Frilly little cups serving sunshine and spring.
We have just one day of school next week (a winter weather make up day) and then we are on Spring Break!
