Clumps of crocus and daffodils,
wet with soft, spring rain,
rise above replenished soil.
Maples’ red buds shake
on ends of thin branches
that vibrate in steady breeze.
Winter’s quiet days rapidly end
with sudden burst of peepers’ song
from swamp which shimmers
in slowly dimming day.
Lainie will participate in a reading of poems written for art in the Blue Wave Fine Art Gallery, Amesbury, MA. The reception and reading is April 2, 6:30-8:30PM.
