Showers cross the land so quickly in spring;
grateful tulips and daffodils yawn and open their lips
as nature’s beauty begins to sing.
I open my umbrella for these rainy-day trips
and from its sides the downpour drips.

The patter seemed harsh as tiny lilies bowed,
but the grass is finally turning green.
Fertile fields remain to be plowed;
boughs droop in the glistening rain’s sheen.
It happens every spring – by rain the Earth’s endowed.

    Spring is here and you bring it in so beautifully Carolyn; love your rhyme scheme too, a bit different which is a nice change from what I usually do. A sweet entry for the contest and I wish you well. Luv, Lizzie
