Mingling with Pusywillows

As Mother Nature strolls across her lands,
Remembering the pusywillows there. 
Bedecked with ferns and roses in her hands.
She visits them while deeply breathing air.
Their unique scent infusion; she commands.
Those puffs of silky gray on branches bear
A sign to all that warmer days are near.
That springtime floras, rosebuds, shall appear.

    Yes, the pusywillows really are a sign that spring will soon be here. I didn't know they grew here in the South, but my mother had many as I was growing up. Great job, Dane. Congratulations on your win! Love, Carolyn

    I don't think pussywillows grow in the south...but they are delightful in the north.
