Flowers of beauty bloom blue and red 
Finally, winter's gone, good-bye Old Man Winter 
Ahh...the new warmth begins 

In the birth of spring, new life begins 
Violets are blue, roses are red  
they've made it through the chilling harsh winter 

Their thorns left lone all through the cold winter 
Still hanging strong as the new spring begins 
They grow new flowers of blue and red 

Flowers of blue and red bloom shortly after winter when spring begins

I find what you write in your poems so visibly true when we walk through our garden, especially after our first rains, and the flourish of color is starting to bud - really breath-taking. Well penned Charles, Poetry hugs, Jennifer.

It is amazing to me how flowers stay hidden, like everything else in winter. However, as soon as it is time for new life to begin. All is bright and colorful again. :) I love it. And, I love this poem. ~ Brandy

I am so hungry for spring and my flowers after I read this, Charles. We are under ice here. Thank you for giving me hope.
