made her entrance
flamboyant in her dress
bright pinks and yellows
colors to impress

dogwoods and red buds
stood out in the crowd
below graceful branches
daffodils stood proud

the dainty bleeding heart
with fragile lace like leaves
danced among the tulips
in springs gentle breeze

a season with a reason
the wonder of it all
hope springs eternal
hark the wake up call
