A morning in Spring

Hundreds of snowdrops
Flowering under old trees
Cold horses awaiting 
Their food to be brought
Paint-flaking windows 
Reflecting thin sunlight
Large piles of wood chopped
To warm up the freeze
Cows at the farm-gate
With milk-swollen udders
Birdsong awakening 
An old hive of bees
Arthritic limbs crackle
The old cat’s awake now 
One eye open
A paw stretched
Assessing the scene

    Gee, Liz, you write with such flair that no one could ever guess you'd only been writing poetry for a few months. What awesome innate talent! You have my admiration. Love, Carolyn

    Snowdrops are little wonders, aren't they? We are surrounded by beauty, that's for sure, and your poem captures a bucketful of it. k
