Spoils of Spring

Libation ever sweet
The quiver of new grass below my feet
To Riverside Park, Dad and I did go
For the picking wild in sun’s warm glow
The scent of green, budding golden light
Yellow flowers, such an alchemic delight
Gathered many and held in hand with love
Mother Earth thanked as too, God above
Be these to be my very first bouquet
I with Dad gifted to Mom on Mother’s day.
