First Blossoms of Spring
In Its Time
Spring’s heat is brief;
one waits with excitement
for relief from winter’s woes.
Though the heart beats with expectation –
cold, raw days continue.
Do not sweat weather’s worries,
stay calm, spring will,
in its time, arrive.
Announcement: Lainie is exhibiting her artwork in group show at the new Amesbury City Hall gallery. There will be an opening of the exhibit and a celebration of the new gallery in May.
In strengthening spring sun
last remnants of snow dissolve –
drip from roof’s edges,
form rivulets along path.
Robins arrive in garden, search
for worms under decaying leaves.
Sprouts of daffodils stretch
their long, green limbs upwards
as if to gather armfuls
of shimmering solar rays.
Announcement: I am exhibiting my watercolors in a group show at Amesbury City Hall during the month of April.
