Spring Wedding by Vivi Steels

It seems a long, grey Winter with no release into Spring and today it is 9c with a strong wind from the North East with dark, glowering rain clouds and misty drizzle.  I am hoping this poem with bring about a change and that we will see Spring very soon.  Our hundred year old pear tree is not yet in blossom and usually is full of white fragrant flowers on my birthday at the beginning of April.

Spring Wedding

apple trees

shivering confetti

wedded to spring

greening its cloth

across lands and fields

to meadows of warmth

doused in cowslips

beyond which clouds curve

over arc of blue

ringed with sun

Below is a photograph of our garden on 6th April last year and it is full of blossom and flowers.
