Patience and Hope

Let me have patience, let me be hopeful
With eager anticipation, I slow my steps
And walk into the promised land of spring
Through the gate in the privit hedge
Down a flight of stone steps
Into the little orchard of apple and pear trees
Where grass is rough and long
And drifts of snowdrops and blue scillas lay
Gnarled around the trunks of trees
And first shoots of daffodils and lilies
Push their way, like green swords, through rich earth.
It is clear, that before long, all will become
A riot of springime, yellow and white
Above on a bare branch, a blackbird perches,
Singing out his tiny heart, across the orchard
Calling out his song of hope
The promised land of spring is on the horizon
Let me be hopeful, let me have patience..

    Absolutely beautiful and enchanting and vivid in describing the approaching spring. The Season which we call and celebrate in India as Vasant Ritu ( Season of spring). And too with daffodils. Its lovely Thanks. Best wishes and love Ravindra

    Very beautiful images, Carrie. Really like the description of the blackbird on "a bare branch" singing of hope as spring approaches. Lovely! Carolyn
