Azaleas putting on spring frocks of
Beautiful shades of salmon or pink.
Calling bees to pollinate,
Delighting humming-birds with drink.

Everything is new in Spring,
Fruit trees gorgeously attired.
Gardens turning up their soil,
Hoping we will be inspired.

I am the happiest of all,
Joyful with the sights and sounds
Kerchief covering my hair,
Lifting plants and planting mounds.

Many birds are building nests.
Nature budding everywhere.
Outdoors calls me, rain or shine,
Peonies with loveliness to spare.

Quite a magic sight to see,
Resulting in an outdoor room,
Sumptuous and magnificent.
The whole of nature is in bloom.

Utter saturation of colors with
Violets peeping through at me.
What a lovely sight they are
Xaggerated to the nth degree.

Yes, the beauty there to see,
Zaps my heart and sets me free.

Wow, dear Joyce, this is a true gem. It was as if I stood there together with you contemplating all the rich beauty of Spring. I have never heard of this form, you have done extremely well!

Love,
Margherita
