And So My Soul

And so my soul
Spills over
Into print again
As the sun spills
Over flowers
And the neighborhood
Sleeps

Endurance is eloquent
And marigolds are
Admirable because
They bloom
So long

Oh, my heart
Is tender
Yet God keeps it
Strong
And so my soul
Spills over
Into print again

Time of Singing (1991).

Snowdrops

Leaves from last autumn are nourishing and protecting the perennials.  Today there are two new colors in the garden:  green for various returning  plants, and white for the snowdrops, which are almost blooming.
