Come Spring

Pods appear upon the sprigs of green reaching skyward 
covered in early morning dew.
Soft yellow petals open and fold down forming a blanket 
upon which the trumpet center will rest.
The sun shining down on the daffodils give a feeling of 
daintiness to the flowers.
One of the most beautiful flowers seen swaying in the 
spring breeze.

A sign that spring is indeed bursting at the seams to be 
born again.
As the spring season arrives and Easter approaches the 
daffodils will be in full bloom.
The trumpets reaching to the sky in a wonderful display 
of beautiful colors.
Again year after year these precious flowers return to us
once more to admire.

Hey Carol...I emailed Francine about my entry that was 9 lines long..she said we had to adhere strictly to the rules..I just wanted to warn you bc this outstanding poem may need the first stanza the most..I would enter that for sure!! If you have ever been to Cox Arboretum here in Dayton, that's the acrostic daffodil poem I wrote about! :) Cheers for you! Gwendolen
