Tulips

I planted bulbs in fall
Totally forgot about them
They sprung up at spring’s call
Adding vivid colors to my garden

Resplendent in yellow, red, white
Swaying to the spring breeze
Filled my heart with delight
Putting gnawing anxiety to ease

They bloomed for a few weeks
Such beauty has a short life
Voice of nature speaks
With hues and beauty rife

Enjoy life when you can
It seems to whisper
Youth and health do not span
For you to enjoy later

I love this Sara -the beautiful jewelled colours of tulips sure do brighten up the garden ... but they bloom for such a short time which is such a shame:-( good luck in the contest:-) hugs Jan xx
