Spring Muse

One day Spring said, “Come forth and make the world a beautiful place,”

And, I heard her call and thought,

I will plant a garden of lilies whose fragrance will pleasure my love when he treads among them.

The melting snow gave them life and they sprang up from the dark mellow earth

And the roots spread far and wide to gather its bounty.

The leaves unfurled and clasped the dew drops;

Then, reached for the warmth of the sun dazzling in the firmament.

Soon plump buds appeared.

From deep within,

The hearts of the lilies opened and filled the garden with perfume;

Whereupon, my love drew near and embraced them with a smile.

    Beautiful. Those species lilies are lovely, and their perfume is paradise. You’re making me long for spring to get here already.

    They can take the cold if well drained.

    Beautiful poem and Lily painting to add compliments. I added Lilies last year and am hoping they are surviving this crazy winter weather…

    I’m beginning to like all the snow. After all, I’m sitting here in front of a nice warm fire looking out the windows, computing away, enjoying the beauty of it. Life is good.

    Wow! Makes me want to plant a field of lilies for MY love.

    I’m full of dreams and expectations. I guess that is part of the fun.
