... this day of rain... here in Tappan, New York

Bloom and Splendor

out my bedroom window I do see
leaf and bloom upon each tree
and from the sky so high above
the sweet rain of nature's love
upon grass, leaf, branch and bough
droplets holding to Spring's sacred vow
lush and green blessings brought to me
bloom and splendor of the dogwood tree.

  1. Dogwood blooms are magnificent, aren't they?!

  2. Theanne, YES, they bring out the dance in me ;-).
