Each day I monitor
the season’s growing progress –
magnolia petals have fallen
just as cherry blossom emerges.
On my daily walk I’m glad to see
how many trees are showing green,
the violets are nearly done
as common spotted orchids dream
of standing proudly, flowering.
To see a skip in my clumsy step,
you should use your imagination-
I could not spring to save my life,
yet Spring is full of fascination.
