A Lavender Day

                                     A Lavender Day

Lilacs and lavender bouquets held in a tiny hand
Blue and yellow striped dresses playing in the sand
Magic moments to share on a bright sunny day
Merry-go-round spinning dreams in every way

Blue overalls on young boys with muddy faces
Girls with yellow dresses who like their pretty laces
Gentle rain falling yet not washing away the fun
Here comes the teacher, and out comes the sun

Little bonnets worn carefully to mask out the sun
Galoshes squeak as the boys laugh and try to run
Watermelon days with so much to do
God planned this day just for me and you

    I'm very pleased that you got a win in SKAT's contest. Much deserved, and I agree with Vassilis: it could be a song... Jack

    PS: Lavender is among my favorite plants/flowers. I grow it in my yard, cook with it, and simply enjoy it's beauty, flowering or not.
