LET IT BLOOM

Watch it bloom.
Watch it grow.

The pretty fragrance.
Sweet as perfume.
The beautiful color.
Pink like cotton candy.
Face to the sun.
As innocent as a child.
Soft petals.
Velvet to the touch.

When will it bloom?
How long do I have to wait?

I’m ready for spring.
I’m ready for flowers.

I’m eager to see the first buds.
The first blooms of the season.
How about one little rose?
That would be enough.
Let it bloom.

A ROSE FOR ME

Watch it bloom.
Watch it grow.
The pretty fragrance.
Sweet as perfume.
The beautiful color.
Pink like cotton candy.
Face to the sun.
As innocent as a child.
Soft petals.
Velvet to the touch.

When will it bloom?
How long do I have to wait?
Must I wait for the snow to fall?
Go away, snow.
I’ve had enough.
No more slush.
No more ice for me.

I’m ready for spring.
I’m ready for flowers.
I’m eager to see the first buds.
The first blooms of the season.
How about one little rose?
That would be enough.
Let it bloom.

 

SPRING FEVER

Let’s serve roses for dessert.<br /> If we can’t have them in our gardens,<br /> we might as well have them for dinner.<br /> Here’s to spring fever!

Let’s serve roses for dessert.

If we can’t have them in our gardens,

we might as well have them for dinner.

Here’s to spring fever!
