poetry

she listens smiling

spring is quietly sneaking

on satin slippered feet

down winter’s hallway

 

she listens smiling

 

behind closed doors

 

tulips are snoring gently

but soon to wake

 

daffodils are whispering they should

arrive fashionably late

 

stock market bees buzz of nothing

but honey drippings and ticker tape

 

pansies sip tea

gossiping about cherry blossoms

who wear pearl earrings

 

too willing to open their petals

doomed to fall for a rake
