Early spring morning,
raindrops glitter on the poplars,
lupines sprinkle hillsides.

Wearing orange-striped vests,
cups open to drink sunshine,
a rainbow of tulips.

Snow twirls on breeze,
hundreds of apple blossoms
tossing petals to the earth.

Easter cantata,
robins perform in the hills,
daffodils dancing.
                  --Brenda Kay Ledford

Welcome Spring!

I hope all my blogger friends will have a beautiful and splendid spring.  I'm so glad to see spring again.  It gives me hope that "all things work together for the good to those who love God and called to Him."  We indeed serve a living Lord!  Amen!

Hi Brenda, Don't think I've ever been as happy to see spring. We went through a horrible Ice Storm with tons of damage on the Cumberland Plateau in February. We were lucky not to have more damage than we did... We were without power for 50 hours and had a lot of tree damage. We are still cleaning up our yard. Fun Fun...

SO--to see the Crocus, Hyacinths and Daffodils in bloom is such a joy. Oh how I love SPRING....

Lovely spring poem, Brenda! I'm so glad to see spring arrive, too. I heard a bit of the Easter cantata this morning just before daybreak - the birds where already singing. Have a great week!

Happy Spring to you dear friend. I hope the freeze doesn't get what's come out this weekend. But we have all the winters yet, Dogwood, Easter, Blackberry, etc. I love your poem so much. Thank you so much for submitting my name for The "Hometown Memories" Book. I submitted a short story and they accepted it. Can't wait to read what you put in.
