Stepping Softly Into Spring~


March arrived here like a little lamb...
Softly upon tippy - toes- - -
Tinted with hints of emerald green- -
Slowly tossing out Winter's weather of woes;

Each day giving hope for this new season...
A time when new foliage and flowers begin to grow- -
Each day - a stepping stone in the Garden...
Preparing for Spring - the glorious season, we all know;

Gradually adding her fragrance to the once crisp air...
Stirring and spreading with the rain showers that flow- -
Warming with each and every sunbeam glistening- -
Embracing the Garden's Pretty Little Maids All In A Row;

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
