last year this year

last year
I missed seeing
daffodils in the yard

they bloom for all
sheltered and strong
by the house

this year
I make a special effort
to see them again

to be sure not to miss them

tulips seem gone
perhaps can plant again
in the fall

and along the old path
primroses

Journal Poem
May 22, 2019

from my archives:

they ask to be
in this poem
daffodils

sunrise
daffodils bowed by rain
recover
