Hope you’ll enjoy this poem I’ve written.


The Revolution Outside Your Door

Nothing stops the march of the violets.
They erupt in purple profusion,
Relentless in their quest for victory over the emerald grass.

Battling against a warm southwest wind,
The trees spread a protective canopy
In defiance of that flame-thrower, the sun.

Tulips explode in vivid red, yellow and pink—
Over hill, over vale—
Resilient and prolific in rebellion.

Spring arrives in the nick of time,
and nature carries the day.
Joyful birds sing their freedom.
