Poem: Spring Dance

Earthworms glide around crocuses,
In and out
Of soil black and soft,
Wet with night’s rain
And morning’s dew.

Ants scurry up and down daffodil stalks
Green and firm,
Into buttercup faces
That smile yellow at hyacinths pink and blue
And heavy with the scent of spring.

Robins chirp and flutter,
Carry away twigs
And blades of grass
To make ready for speckled,
Sky-blue eggs.

Under the peonies
Lilies of the valley bow,
Knowing that soon
The bumblebee will come
To caress the roses.
