I Found Spring In My Backyard Today

"The simple flowers of our spring are what I want to see again."
John Keats
"Poetry is not an orchid, but a crocus. Simplicity is the essence of poetry."
May Sarton
"When daffodils begin to peer....Why, then comes in the sweet o' the year. "
"'Tis but a little faded flower, But oh, how fondly dear! Twill bring me back one golden hour, Through many a weary year."
Ellen C. Howarth
"And there is pansies, that's for thoughts."

Celebrate Spring!
