such be the wondrous glory of young Spring
the bright yellow of daffodils and forsythia
the breath of new green on the willow tree
patches of fresh grass in silent quivers
bulbs with peeking green folds of budding leaves
daylight that lingers longer than its yesterday
morning dew so gentle in its touch
cool temperatures linger yet
the noon day sun warm and welcomed
all has its seasonal plan its charter divine
magical is this flow of yellow and green.
