Ode to a fickle spring

when seedlings from the nursery

are chosen in variety

timing is key


we wait for spring all winter through

when plants make plans to grow anew

and hope does too


but when to plant is quite an art

this year our spring was late to start

and all lost heart


some plants were killed off by the frost

through savage winds more blooms were lost

we count the cost

  1. Hello Lesly! My name is Raul, and I used to enjoy reading your poems on Hellopoetry. I wanted to let you know I still very much appreciate your poems and your art is also absolutely lovely! You shared your blog with me some time ago and so I try to visit from time to time.

    1. Thank you, Raul. How kind of you to comment and to visit me occasionally. I am afraid I am in the doldrums with both art and poetry at the moment but your nice words are an encouragement.
